Josh Barnett Feels He Is The Best In The World, Sick Of UFC Talk

Josh Barnett will look too close out the long winded Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix later this month when he steps into the cage against the other finalist in the tourney, Daniel Cormier, and spoke about his feelings on his position among the heavyweight elite and also explained why he is over hearing about fighting in the UFC while speaking to MMAWeekly.com this week:
"Itâ€™s really unimportant. I think all the speculation is good for the people that enjoy the sport and they want to watch, and they want to be a part of that guessing game â€˜whatâ€™s next._ You read a comic book and youâ€™re always waiting for the next issue, but youâ€™re always thinking about what happens if some of the X-Men end up fighting The Avengers, or if Iron Man left the team. That part is unavoidable. For me, itâ€™s actually starting to become annoying, but I understand the reason to ask it because who wouldnâ€™t want to fight in the UFC? Iâ€™d love to go over there and beat everybody up and sit on top of that pile too. I believe Iâ€™m the best heavyweight out there in the world, so what better way to prove it than to punch everybody else in the face first."
