Barnett: ‘If I Fought Travis Now, I’d Want to Take His Fucking Head Off’

David St. Martin at MMA Fighting summarises comments Josh Barnett made on his recent Joe Rogan Show appearance regarding Travis Browne.

Barnett:

If I fought Travis now, I’d want to take his fucking head off. He disrespected me in the ring after the match, all this shit. He fucking cut his throat, he did all this stuff. That’s my thing. He did it to mock me for winning.

I would love to see these two fight again down the line – though for that to make sense Barnett would need to win one, and Browne lose one, in the meantime.

Barnett doesn’t sound like he has UFC title hopes foremost on his mind, throughout his discussion with Joe Rogan. More like he’s looking for individual fights and challenges that hold a personal interest to him.

Barnett mentioned a grappling match with Nogueira in Metamoris, serving as a rubber match following their two battles in Pride years back, as something of interest to him. He also mentions the possibility of fighting Roy Nelson next in the UFC.

His appearance on the show was characteristically entertaining. You can watch the full thing on YouTube.
