Cyborg/Girlfight Monster Bout Back On Thanks to Late-Night Negotiations


Josh Barnett Interview – Watch more Funny Videos

After all the drama at yesterday’s weigh-in and the madness that followed Hitomi Akano’s threat to pull out of the bout with Christianne "Cyborg" Santos due to the tremendous difference in weight, the bout is now apparently back on after Scott Coker smoothed everything over in late night/early morning negotiation sessions.  No one is saying exactly what sweetened the deal enough for Akano to jump back in, but we’re guessing it was lots of money and a giant teddy bear.

In the above video, Akano’s trainer, Josh Barnett, talks with Ariel Helwani about his Girlfight Monstrosity of a student, and about his own future.  On Aleks Emelianenko, Barnett again confirms that due to blood test-related issues, that fight could never happen…in a ring.

Barnett is a funny dude, half the time I want to hate him though. The last part was great.

I like Josh Barnett a lot, but does anyone else get the feeling that he does cosplay in a XXXXL sized Sailor Moon outfit when nobody is around?

Cyborg is going to DESTROY tonight.

They really should just make an overweight tranny division for her.

JOSH BARNETT JUST HATES IT THAT HE IS NOT PART OF THE UFC ORGANIZATION. THATS WHERE EVERY FIGHTER IN THE BUISNESS WANTS TO BE. HE NEEDS NOT TO HATE BECAUSE THE UFC IS GREAT.

This is not a good day for me.

He seemed very much at peace in this interview I just assumed he would go on a rant about wating to beat up Kenny Florian or something. It must have been Ariel's soothing voice.

So did Josh Barnett just confirm that Alek will never get a licensed to fight because he can't pass testing?

So did anyone saw the Counter program the UFC is launching vs Strikeforce's fight.

It seems like the UFC is trying to make any quick buck even going as far as airing clips of GSP w/ notions of cheating, they didnt give any explanation of the breathing techniques.

Wow UFC doesn't care much about its fighters, the way its going, its gonna make GSP look really bad.

I heard they offered Wenderlei Silva a teddy to agree to the catchweight of 195. He accepted on the agreement that the teddy weighed 10 lbs to make him and his new friend up to 205.

And Jesus, Cris. Gina can get away with not making weight because she's the face of womens MMA (and because elite XC were as bent as Perez Hilton). It's a harsh fact of life honey but there's always been one rule for the pretty girls, and another for... well... you.
