"I have no idea why some are struggling to adjust. With Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, he just made one mistake and ran into Heath Herring's leg. That is a big leg so it is going to take some steam out of you. Nog recovered well and I think that other than that kick he dominated the rest of the fight. At the same time Quinton Jackson and Anderson Sylva in my eyes are PRIDE fighters. So you could say that PRIDE owns two belts in the UFC right now. Both of those guys fought almost all their fights and made their name in PRIDE. They are PRIDE fighters. It is easy to throw a UFC label on Jackson because he is American. He only fought one fight in the cage with WFA before he went to the UFC."
-- Former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett talks with PunchDrunkGamer.com about the recent performances of PRIDE FC fighters inside the Octagon. Despite losses from fighters such as Mirko Cro Cop, Mauricio Shogun Rua, Dan Henderson, Heath Herring, Kazuhiro Nakamura and Marcus Aurelio, "The Baby Face Assassin" argues that two former PRIDE FC veterans are current UFC champions. The free agent also reveals that he wants to compete in Pancrase and a fight with Randy Couture would "never happen."
