Josh Barnett Ready To Fight, Waiting For Offer That’s Not A ‘Slap In The Face’

“Definitely something’s going to happen this year…As soon as any promotion out there stops bull—-ing and comes correct, that’s all. If they want me to fight, all they got to do is step up to the plate, throw me an opportunity and don’t put something in front of me that’s a slap in my face or ridiculous.”

—Josh Barnett on Hardcore Sports Radio, via Fanhouse, claiming he’ll fight when a promotion makes him an offer he deems acceptable

So let me get this straight. Josh Barnett gets popped for steroids three times. The latter of which ruins Affliction’s biggest main event two weeks before the show and sends the promotion into utter disarray. And now promotions aren’t willing to pay him the big bucks because he might be a liability? Wow, the nerve of those guys…
