Josh Barnett StrikeforceThroughout his career, Josh Barnett has been a part of a great many big fights including stints in both the UFC and Pride.

But when the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix started, Barnett believes they may have assembled the greatest group of fighters to ever start for one tournament.

Unfortunately, a couple of upsets, the fact that Alistair Overeem was removed from the tournament, and multiple delays left a bit of a black eye on what was potentially a fantastic tournament put on by Strikeforce.

Still, Barnett believes the end game with his fight against Daniel Cormier will still pay off.

“As a Grand Prix, this was arguably the greatest collection of heavyweights that there had ever been put together. This is going to be a tournament that’s going to be marred with an asterisk here and there because of the way things turned out,” said Barnett.

“I think when it’s all said and done if you were to watch it front to back, you’d be hard pressed to find anybody that could seriously say, ‘I hated this.’ I think it’s going to shine in the end; it’s going to deliver.”

Check out this one on one interview with Barnett prior to his fight with Daniel Cormier in Strikeforce:
