I'd say he has a fair shot at outwrestling Fedor standing. Whether he can do anything with that I'm not sure about, as Fedor both hits harder and has better jiujitsu.
Wow. This is the first of my fantasy fights in 09. Barnett's got all the heart in the world, but logic and paper say he doesn't have a shot in hell.
I see Fedor with a KO. Barnett's ground game is too good for a sub, but he tends to wait in standup and his jab is sloppy. He won't get Zulu'd, but he's going down.
Barnett took what, two rounds of GnP to finish Yvel from mount? I have no clue what he's gonna do in Fedor's guard. I admit I've only seen a couple of his fights but I'm not sure what he has to offer his opponent this time around in terms of threats.
I will be chanting USA at my computer screen. Josh Barnett needs to Fujita smash him, quick takedown and pound on fedors head for a stoppage.
Edit: Watch the first Barnett v Noguiera fight for the reason I'm both a Nogueira and a Barnett fan.
