For a grown man in a teddy bear costume, Chris Barnett may be the most unassuming heavyweight fighter on the planet. Physically, the man who goes by “Huggy Bear” is a walking contradiction to everything the common fan might associate with being an MMA fighter. There is no ridiculously chiseled physique, angry walkouts or no over-the-top pre-fight banter. What you see is what you get from Barnett—an exceptionally large man (5'9", 295 lbs) with an even bigger smile. There is nothing wrong with bei read news >>

The very idea of a fight between Mark Hunt and Josh Barnett is enough to unfurl long involuntary strings of slobber from Brian Stann’s mouth. "You’ve got me drooling over that one," he told his fellow commentator Mike Goldberg at the proposition, just minutes after Hunt became the first man to dispatch Roy Nelson via knockout. If Hunt inspires that kind of reaction in chiseled men of character, imagine what he does to people who are easily awed? People like me, who watched the end sequence at le read news >>

If the success of Eddie Bravo over Royler Gracie and Josh Barnett over Dean Lister at Metamoris have taught us anything, it's not that jiu-jitsu is a weak or overrated art. It's that, like all forms of grappling, it has its own seat of weaknesses. In a pure jiu-jitsu competition, particularly in the gi, such foibles aren't readily apparent. But tinker with the rules, expand the margins of what's allowed and alternative forms of grappling (or uncommon ideas even within jiu-jitsu) begin to demonst read news >>

UFC heavyweight Josh Barnett is open to the suggested Jared Rosholt fight, but doubts he will be back in the octagon anytime soon. Josh Barnett is in no rush to get back into the octagon.
