5 Minutes with Josh Barnett

What’s next for Josh Barnett?
Not much right now. But really, I’m just planning to do the same thing I’ve always done. Crush my enemies, see them driven before me and hear the lamentation of their women.

 

If you could fight anyone outside of the MMA world, who would it be?
Alexander Karelin (former Olympic Gold Medal Wrestler for Russia).

 

What’s it like being a star in Japan?
I’m a star?

 

So we hear!
It’s great. I get to go on game shows where we get to guess how many pickles are in the jar while taking a pair of panties off a grown man…ya know, cool, weird things like that. If I didn’t get those kinds of perks from my star power…who knows where I would be in this life!

 

If you weren’t a fighter, what would we see Josh Barnett doing right now?
I’d probably be a poor imitation of Dolph Lundgren.

 

Beer or liquor?
What’s the saying? Beer is fine…but liquor is quicker.

 

I think it’s candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker…but I get your point. So, what’s your drink of choice?
Johnny Walker Blue Label. I’d like to try the Royal Salute by Chivas.

 

Animal House, Dumb and Dumber, or Old School?
Hmmm…Dumb and Dumber.

 

Who is the nicest guy in MMA?
Kind of a hard thing to pick. There are so many great guys out there… I’ll say Hiroyuki Abe.

 

What are some of your hobbies outside of the ring?
Muscle cars, anime, comic books, video games, guns…that pretty much sums it up. I have numerous things that I do to try and take up the spare time I have from fi ghting.

 

What’s the best muscle car ever made?
Holy crap, that’s a hard one. Gotta be the ’67 Shelby GT 500.

 

If you could be any comic book character?
Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star.

 

What’s your biggest pet peeve?
People chewing with their mouth open.

 

And now for the FIGHT! Standard two. Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, or Jessica Simpson?
Jessica Biel. [for those scoring at home, that’s one vote Biel, one vote Alba]

 

What song do you jam out to that no man should be caught listening to?
Spice Girls, I think the name of the song is Spice Up Your Life.
