I feel like he was using in Japan as well, people rank him as a top 3 HW,
he had that last guy he fought mounted for like 10 minutes and just couldn't finish, it almost went to decision.
He should have walked through that guy.

Yet people bring up Shogun looking bad since Pride.
yeah, he was.

and i don't know what his deal was in his last fight but he's a top 3 HW.

most guys use in Japan.

I just don't see it I guess.
People always want to say Fedor this or Fedor that not fighting top guys.
But Josh Barnett hasn't beaten anybody top 10 in 3 years,
and that was a split decision over Nog.
I suppose you could argue the win over Jeff Monson, but monson was 2 - 2 in his last 4 and wasn't doing well at all when Barnett beat him.

I guess I just don't see him putting on top 3 type performances.
IMO too many HW's have more impressive performances over tougher guys for Josh to be ranked even top 5.

well yeah he hasn't won over a top guy like that in a while but like Fedor, you know that when he fights a top guy, he'll probably win.

he lost to Cro Cop 3 times but i only count 1. he got hurt in one and just came off of a 30 minute war in the other with Nog. Cro Cop beat Wanderlei in like a minute so he wasn't tired.

he actually had Nog in a tight sub but the bell rang...i don't know if Nog would have gotten out. Barnett has some of the best subs of any HW and i have no idea why he couldn't finish Yvel in his last fight right away.

I am interested to see who he is fighting at Affliction 3.
Apparently it is NOT Fedor. But they said that the fans will be very happy with Fedor's opponent.


I guess they are both fighting somebody else, and going to further hype it for Affliction 4.

I would much rather see Barnett vs. Fedor but Monson is at least a good grappler. I could be slightly interesting watching Fedor teach Monson what true Anarchy is all about.
