Josh Barnett takes a step up in competition

If Mark Hunt working for HUSTLE wasn’t enough to break your heart, I’m sure this one will make many an MMA fan’s eyes tear up a bit: Josh Barnett will be in Japan over the New Year, but only for a catch wrestling match against welterweight weirdo Hikaru Sato.

Sato is pictured above … he’s the one wearing the maid’s outfit and cat ears. While the maid outfit isn’t what he normally wears, the fuzzy pink cat ears do make appearances in most of Sato’s other pictures.

Josh fights Sato and Fedor fights Hong Man Choi (possibly) proves that God does exist, and he hates humanity.


    He’s just making money and not being boring.
    “All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring.”

    That’s an awesome quote … where’d you get that?

    Barnett probably got offered some decent money to own a .500 fighter in a catch wrestling fight. Big deal.

    Barnett is hopefully thinking about trying to take on Fedor soon, and M-1 Global is hopefullly not crapping their pants about money yet and willing to set up the fight.

    Or if your pathetic and don’t read, just google his quotes.

    I’ve read a bunch of Chuck’s books – Fight Club, Survivor, Lullaby and Diary. Then I was a doofus and lent them all to a friend who promptly fell off the face of the earth without ever returning them. I got a bus trip tonight … I think I’m gonna go buy Choke and Fight Club for the trip

    Barnett is crap anyways. Go ‘roid up and wrestle maids, freakshow.

    Come on now Linker…Survivor is the best of the Chuck books, go with Survivor and Fight Club (Choke was fine but not as good as those two). Haven’t read the new one yet, but have heard good things.
