Josh Barnett is fighting Brazilian heavyweight Geronimo dos Santos at the newly minted Impact Fighting Championships in Australia this weekend. Skip to the 1:20 mark of this interview to hear Barnett say that he is going to "anally rape" dos Santos if possible.
Josh Barnett is a smart guy. Though he has made some stupid mistakes, he generally carries himself as an intelligent man. He definitely seems way too intelligent to resort to making comments about sexual violence to make people want to see him fight. But with language like that used to describe a legal prizefight, is it any wonder that 67 percent of New Yorkers don't want our sport in their state?
