Former UFC Heavyweight champion Josh Barnett is pretty much fed up with Dana White saying that Randy Couture is “unbeatable”. At UFC 36-Worlds Collide, Josh Barnett became the Heavyweight champion after he faced Randy for the belt.
However, his belt was stripped when he tested positive for steroids during a mandatory post-fight drug test. Josh went on to become a Pancrase champion and continued his career in Japan at PrideFC.
Josh still feels that he could take on Randy no matter what Dana White or anyone else has to say.
This is what he states in his MySpace:
“ Let’s get straight to it and say that Randy did a phenomenal job at UFC
74 in defending his title. As a fan and a fellow Washingtonian I was
happy to see him win. But as for the title itself — it still sits in
my house. No one in UFC ever beat me for it, and as far as I am
concerned, no one in the UFC can be the heavyweight champion until they
take that belt off of me in the cage.
At the post fight press conference, Dana White said “there isn’t anyone in the world that can beat this guy” in reference to Randy. All this because Randy beat a guy that had less than ten fights and only one noteworthy win? That’s not even a world championship level fight, let alone reason to proclaim the winner as “unbeatable”. This comment was made even more ridiculous by the fact that I was standing right there, living proof that Randy Couture is definitely beatable. “Unbeatable”, Dana says. If he actually believes that, I’m more than willing to step into the cage and prove him wrong. It wouldn’t even have to be for the belt. I already got the real belt. They can keep their pile of brass they purport as the UFC Heavyweight Title and put it on their next paper champ.“
