The highlight of 2013 was running into Josh Barnett on the streets of downtown LA on St. Paddy’s Day and then meeting him again later that night so that we could take shots inside some strange bar with equally bizarre artwork. That’s right, get jealous. Turn into jelly. Spread yourself on peanut butter and then feed yourself to an elementary school kid for all I care. I even ate cookies with Josh Barnett in Dallas, TX after he finished Brett Rogers in the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand-Prix. Whenever Barnett and I spend time together, we love to consume items through our orifices — that’s just how we do it. Normal people wouldn’t understand.
In fact this weekend we’re going to shoot an action scene for a movie. See, FOX should practically make a buddy-comedy of both of us. We’re like best friends. The dude doesn’t even follow us on Twitter. Damn.
You’re probably reading this article to comment on the announcement of Josh Barnett vs. Frank Mir set for UFC 164 in Milwaukee — which television advertising has taught me over the years is home to giant mountains of beer and large-breasted women. Should be a good show. Check out the fight announcement from @UFC.
