    :noes:

    This is from Josh Barnett's Myspace....

    Let's get straight to it and say that Randy did a phenomenal job at UFC 74 in defending his title. As a fan and a fellow Washingtonian I was happy to see him win. But as for the title itself -- it still sits in my house. No one in UFC ever beat me for it, and as far as I am concerned, no one in the UFC can be the heavyweight champion until they take that belt off of me in the cage.

    At the post fight press conference, Dana White said "there isn't anyone in the world that can beat this guy" in reference to Randy. All this because Randy beat a guy that had less than ten fights and only one noteworthy win? That's not even a world championship level fight, let alone reason to proclaim the winner as "unbeatable". This comment was made even more ridiculous by the fact that I was standing right there, living proof that Randy Couture is definitely beatable.

    "Unbeatable", Dana says. If he actually believes that, I'm more than willing to step into the cage and prove him wrong. It wouldn't even have to be for the belt. I already got the real belt. They can keep their pile of brass they purport as the UFC Heavyweight Title and put it on their next paper champ."




    Sounds like he is turning to his prowrestling side

    Apparantly there really isn't any bad press... think barnett is trying to create a stir to launch his career in the US again. I would love to see him in the ring against Gonzaga, then perhaps a rematch with crocop. Would be nice to see Randy and him take to the cage too. I really like how the ufc can consolidate a lot of the best fighters in the world under one roof.

    So Babalu chokes a guy unconscious for no reason while refs are trying to pull him off and it is all cool, but Josh talks some smack and he is the devil?

    Heath didnt do anything. During the weigh in it was all Babalu while Heath just stood there smiling and Heath did not have a mugshot shirt

    Lots of other ways he could have said that without it coming off as asshole-ish. Sure the Gonzaga win doesnt make Randy invincible and sure I can think of a handful of HW fighters that would give Randy all he could handle, but that does not mean you have to call him a 'paper champ'. If Josh really cared so much about the title or Randy he'd take the fight for not much $$ and Im sure it would happen.

    :ugh: Christ man, what are you talking about? You honestly think some e-words are worse than choking a guy unconscious? Barnett is clearly eager to get into the cage and this is all hype, it's all WWE shenanigans to get people talking. Babalu is acting like a thug in the cage and I guarantee if Josh/Randy went down and Barnett won, he'd let go whatever he had as soon as he felt the tap and take the win with class like he's always done.

    Seriously, I can't believe you think that sending a message like that is just fine and trash talking online is a crime. We're all guilty of it, that's the internet. It's a hype machine and a means to get shit stirring. Just like Dana is hyping Randy as unbeatable, Barnett is hyping himself to be the guy who beats him.

    In the end, I think its fair to say that at least Heath had the balls to say shit to someone's face.

    Calling someone out on myspace? This is like shit you read about in a tabloid about how one rich spoiled whore sent a mean message to another rich spoiled whore.

    On top of that, its so self-serving, hes hoping to generate some hype for this because he knows the UFC doesn't want him back. He wants the fans to demand the match so the UFc has to take him.

    all sorbal had to do was publicly deny holding it on purpose and say he just got caught up in the moment and excited and nothing would have fallen on him. seems stupid to me :dunno:

    He fell out of favor after testing positive for roids no? Stripped of the title, went overseas etc. Something tells me thats playing into it.
