Dana At UFC 99 Q&A: Middleweight Title Picture, Would Sign Josh Barnett

UFC 99 Q&A

Dana had a couple interesting things to say at yesterday’s Q&A session for the UFC Fight Club members.

Dana had mentioned on the Countdown to UFC 99 show that if Wanderlei and Anderson both win their fights against Franklin and Forrest, respectively, there is a good possibility they could meet in the near future for the title. Turns out that scenario would only play out though if Michael Bisping loses to Dan Henderson. Here’s how things stand now.

  • If Bisping wins, he gets title shot; if Wanderlei wins and Marquardt beats Maia, they could end up fighting
  • If Bisping loses and Wanderlei wins, Wand could get the title shot
  • If both Bisping and Wanderlei lose, who knows, Dana didn’t say, but the Marquardt/Maia winner and Henderson would probably be considered

Of course, things can change in the blink of an eye with title shots so like Dana said, we’ll have to see how it all plays out.

Dana was also asked if he would ever be willing to sign Josh Barnett, and surprisingly he said yes, he would be willing to sign Barnett, but only if Josh beats Fedor which Dana said would prove Barnett is one of the best in the world.
