Strikeforce Quick Quote: Josh Barnett is getting annoyed by your 'unavoidable' UFC questions

"It’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 ‘what’s next.' You read a comic book and you’re always waiting for the next issue, but you’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, it’s actually starting to become annoying, but I understand the reason to ask it because who wouldn’t want to fight in the UFC? I’d love to go over there and beat everybody up and sit on top of that pile too. I believe I’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."

Strikeforce World Grand Prix Tournament finalist Josh Barnett (via MMA Weekly), who faces undefeated wrestling phenom Daniel Cormier at the upcoming Showtime event on May 19, 2012 in San Jose, Calif., would "love" to go to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and prove himself to be worthy of the title of world's greatest heavyweight. Unfortunately, any talk of Barnett being numero uno -- or heading to Las Vegas to prove it -- is premature, as "The Baby-faced Assassin Warmaster" must first conquer the 265-pound ranks in Strikeforce, starting with "DC." Anyone out there in the mixed martial arts (MMA) blogosphere think he can get it done?
