MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

And Now, Your Moment of Zen: Josh Barnett Does Tag-Team Wrestling


(Props: Sav Sci Blog via Fightlinker)

MMA’s most notorious steroid abuser is going to be juuuuuuust fine. On August 9th, just three weeks after testing positive for steroids for the third time in his career, and destroying Affliction’s MMA promotion, Josh Barnett was back in Japan for Antonio Inoki’s IGF Genome 9 show, where he performed in a tag-team wrestling performance with three other larger-than-life figures: Bob Sapp, Yoshihiro Takayama, and Naoya Ogawa. Part one is above; part two is after the jump. I’m not a connoisseur of puroresu by any means, but even I know that the Ogawa/Takayama sequence at the 3:12-4:57 mark is some garbage-ass shit. How much did your dignity cost, Josh?

Steroids + Ice Cream = Flubber

Barnett was doing Steroids?..

Seriously.... He is shaped like an Eggplant, and looks as muscular and firm as 2 month old Celery...

What a dumb ass...

To answer some of the people who are questioning why the Japanese people enjoy seeing these fighters in both real and fake fights; the Japanese people see both types of fights as entertainment. While of course they do understand the difference between the real thing and scripted fighting, they also feel that either way they are getting to see these fighters "working" and simply seeing their stars in action (for many of the fans anyway) is enough.

At least those are the notes I have been given from the Island of Japan.

Not to Josh - fire your steriod source - they are NOT working!

"has anyone read the fedor vs ricco rodriguez rumor? i'm hanging on to my last shred of respect for Fedor but if he fought that loser piece of shit, that'd be it, it'd be impossible to stand up for the guy anymore."

Is that suppose to be before or after he fights another middle weight?

That is the worst thing I've ever seen.

What is this... the Daily Show?

Kick his ass, Seabass!

HEY CP! We banned Tito before why can't we ban Josh Barnett? I think he's worst than Tito and that Fat Roid user needs to be forgotten.
The Clinch- August 13, 2009 at 2:45 pm
Hey BJ, does Barnett fit the mold for your steroid accusations?

Easy money.
Capt. Shamrock- August 13, 2009 at 1:52 pm
At least Sapp didn't start crying - I'd call that a victory by itself
Contraband- August 13, 2009 at 1:48 pm
Thats the most gas I've seen in sapps tank
cbjerrisgaard- August 13, 2009 at 1:36 pm
I'm always confused how the Japanese can watch these guys fight for real, and then at another point in time watch them pro wrestle. Isn't that sort of, destroying the imagination of it all? I mean we all know Joshy and his roids would snap the limbs off of Sapp and his ... er roids?
