Josh Barnett vs. Fedor Emelianenko – Only a matter of time…

Newly signed Strikeforce heavyweight, Josh Barnett says it’s just a matter of time before he see’s himself stepping into the cage with formerly ranked number one heavyweight in the world, Fedor Emelianenko.

Barnett, speaking via, said:

“At some point me and Fedor, I said to him, I go, ‘look, the only people that can beat you. I can beat you and you can beat me. If we actually have to lose, if there’s any reason we have to lose to anyone,’ and I preferred it be like that, but this is fighting and things happen. Fedor was careless with his offense and his movements and he got caught in a very bad spot by a guy who one of his specialties is the triangle off his back.”

When you put yourself in that kind of position with a guy like Werdum, it’s not by chance that you get put in a triangle or an armbar. People lose, and it doesn’t diminish anything in my eyes about Fedor or the importance of a fight between the two of us. I’m sure it will happen at some point, and it will be just as amazing, at least for me anyways, as it would have been.”
