Josh Barnett waiting on the right deal

Josh Barnett waiting on the right deal

Josh Barnett will be happy with whatever may happen in his MMA Career.
However this former champion, remains unsigned after the closing of Strikeforce earlier this year. He spoke about this in a recent interview:
“For me, it’s more about getting the right kind of deal done. Because if I’m not fighting, I’m okay. I can do other stuff. I’ve got other things to do. I’ve got other aspects of my career to work on and to work with. I’m okay with that. I’m going to stay in the gym and stay training and stay active in martial arts. It’s not like I’m just going to drop off and all of a sudden have to get ready for a fight. What secures your future is what’s on paper. That’s all I can really count on. The time that it takes to get that correct is the time it’s going to take.”
It appeared as if Barnett was close to joining the UFC a few months ago, but then the negotiation was scratched.
“I don’t have any personal vendettas or anything of the sort with any of those companies. It’s really just a matter of coming to terms with something I feel like is the right deal for me. I have no doubt if I’m in the UFC or Bellator or wherever, that I’m going to bring value and offers to wherever I’m at. I don’t have any doubts how I would fare against anybody in the world. I’ve been in plenty of fights in the ring, out of the ring, and I know what I’m capable of and how good I am.”
Josh is definitely getting up in age for a fighter. At age 35 he still has the rush to fight. Which is great in MMA, but have we seen the best Josh Barnett? Is he past his prime?
