Josh Barnett Wants To Fight In 2013

Josh Barnett (31-6) is anxious for another fight, so he can avenge his loss earlier this year.

With one fight left on his Strikeforce contract Barnett isn’t certain that his next fight will happen under that company’s name, but feels it is likely.

“I just want it,” said Barnett. “I don’t care where it happens, but I would absolutely assume it would be in Strikeforce.”

Barnett looks to fight before the end of 2012 and knows there are plenty of potential candidates out there.

“I want to fight before the end of the year,” said Barnett. “There’s always someone who needs an a** beating.”

Barnett’s five year winning streak was snapped in May when Daniel Cormier (10-0) defeated him at the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Final.
