"I do know that I'm looking forward to fighting sometime in January for Strikeforce and giving all the fans that have been following me on Showtime and Strikeforce exactly what they expect. I don't have an opponent, I can just start with all my members of my team in the gym, and start thrashing them."
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight titleholder Josh Barnett, who was last seen getting worked by Strikeforce Grand Prix Champion Daniel Cormier, is expecting to get back inside the cage shortly after the New Year. Stop me if you've heard this one before. "The Warmaster" has one fight remaining on his current contract and could be included in the Showtime network's mega-card scheduled for January 2013, assuming an opponent can be found -- or if all else fails -- imported from UFC. Anyone come to mind?
