Josh Barnett: Stop the BS and come correct if you want to see me fight

Quoteworthy:

"My issue is only with California. I can fight anywhere in the world and any state in the Union ... as soon as any promotion out there stops bullshittin' and comes correct, that's all. Now if they want me to fight, all they gotta do is step up to the plate, throw me an opportunity and don't put something in front of me that's a slap in my face or ridiculous. I've talked to [Strikeforce] but I'm not really gonna get too much into that."

Affliction Grim Reaper and former PRIDE star Josh Barnett is ready to return to the North American fight scene after testing positive for steroids heading into his 2009 fight with Fedor Emelianenko. "The Babyface Assassin" appealed the finding, but his protest was not enough to save the T-Shirt promotion from a last-minute collapse. Barnett has been staying busy in grappling competitions but is ready to fight if the promotions out there will "stop bullshittin' and come correct." Any MMA fans still interested in seeing what this heavyweight can do in today's fight scene? Or is he better off returning to Japan?
