I still don't know who I'll be rooting for on this one....
I'd like to see Barnett win cause he's old school, but I'm expecting Cormier to come out guns blazin, so I'm def. gonna order showtime
"when the shit goes down"..........
I like barnett. I think barnett is gonna win pretty easily,.....unless cormier catches barnett in the stand-up. barnett's ground game is one of the best for a big man. but cormier got nasty hands
Josh Barnett vs Daniel Cormier Promo
Got to say I'm PUMPED fpr this fight! I'd love to see Barnett back in the UFC but IDK if we'll ever get to see that w/ the past history between him and Dana. It's being said now that the winner of the GP will have one more fight left on his contract in strikeforce, then that'll be the end of the Strikeforce HW division for good. So my hunch is that Dana and co. think Barnett will win this and there gonna make him win at least one more before bringing him on.
I just don't know if Barnett can take Cormier down (*Cormier was an Olympic wrestler*) as easily as he has a lot of others.
Just ordered Showtime!!!!
Barnett favorite to beat Cormier, barely

How Fight Odds Work
Gilbert Melendez -445
Josh Thomson +345
In this fight, Gil would be the favorite at -445 it means for every $4.45 bet, you will win $1 if he wins the fight. So if you bet $445 on Gil and he wins, you'd profit $100. If Gil were to lose though, you'd lose the full $445.
If you were to bet Thomson at +345, you would win $3.45 for every $1 bet. Bet $100 on Thomson and he wins the fight, you profit $345. If Thomson lost the fight, you lose $100.
looking forward to the fight too. I read somewhere that dana would welcome barnett to the ufc..... wondr if barnett's still using though. I think he's got to be. he's a repeat offender.
damn! I'd go with the odds and drop some money on the punk. I heard he's injured though. but the punk is no joke
Yea, I'm 99% that barnett still uses. He's just got better at cycling it out of his system. Just took him a while, after he came back from Japan/no regulation's where he didn't have to worry about it, to get the "cycling" thing down pat. But now he's got it down (hopefully he doesn't piss hot if/when theytest him after this event *fingers crossed*)
And about Thomson......he is a bad motherfucker, but so is Melendez, plus there were reports that Thomson injured his knee recently. Thomson denied the reports, but many think he's just fighting despite the injury so as not to miss the payday. Melendez says "Thomson pulls this shit every time they fight (leaking injury reports) and will just say he really was injured once he (Melendez) beats him."
But I'd guess that Melendez will take this in another decision (he may submit him if the knee is really injured and it's easy for Gilbert to take Josh down).
ya barnett needs to learn to cycle better. plus too alistair got set-up. I don't think alistair was ready for that suprise test. having the testosterone of 14 man is outrageous!! lol but I'm still an alistair fan. a barnett fan too
Yea I'm gonna keep it real real right here and lay it out.......some may agree, some may not but........Steroids make sports better! Baseball was fun as fuck to watch when Bonds and Mcguire were bombing homers 500 fuckin ft! But now it's back to being a 3 hr snooze fest like it was before the steroid heyday.
I'm a fan of Overeem/Barnett/Sonnen/and several others who have tested positive cause I don't give a fuck about that shit. I just like seeing a good scrap!
Testosterone of 14 men..........hehehe caught his ass at the beginning of that cycle huh? lol
