Barnett is ready to face a new path on his fighting career.

went straight to the point about his career intention during the Thurday episode of “The MMA Hour.”

“My goal is to be the absolute best in the world and to beat everybody who walks this earth. And you know what? There’s a lot of people out there,” Barnett said in a statement.

Barnett signed a contract with , which he described to be not perfect but enough to clean his name after the failed drug test prior to his fight with Fedor Emelianenko in July, 2009.

No definite plans yet on who will Barnett face inside the octagon. However, he is expecting his debut to happen by the end of the year.

Barnett added that he made no effort to negotiate with UFC.”They stepped up to the plate and I dealt with them as such. That’s really what it comes down to. The UFC, I think they’re not really in a spot where they need to acquire anybody. It’s probably better for them to just take a newbie and make him look great than to actually have to deal with great fighters.”

    Awesome comment by Barnett. Barnett is a tough, big fighter and has some mean kicks. UFC is hype times ten. UFC has great new talent, and showcasing it is their bread and butter. It’s getting old watching Dana White rip on each person that loses, showing what his brand is all about. Strikeforce is where it’s at, they just need to do some scouting and pick up some new talent to mix things up a bit. Not whining kids living in a house like ‘The Ultimate Fighter,’ but some legitimate younger talent from Russia, Brazil. Establish a respect for the sport, unlike UFC’s ‘what have you done for me lately’ hyped-up BS. Well said, Josh.
