“It all gets worked out eventually in the end. A lot of paper gets pushed around, pencils are moved, some are dropped if there’s hot chicks in the room and you want them to pick ‘em up. But either way, you just go to the business table and you do what you gotta do. It’s been so long, honestly, all I know at this point is how to punch stuff, sweat, and scream in pain from excessive workouts. That’s it. That’s all I know how to do, suffer and be murderous, because all I do is train right now. Negotiations, they’re a thing of the past.”

“I think that a lot of guys fight not for the reasons that we used to fight for,” Barnett said. “There’s a lot of guys that get in here and they just want to get in, make a run, think that they’re going to be famous, make a lot of money, what have you. They fight for glory, where we fought for blood and for honor.

“There’s still great, true fighters coming out of this, but these guys aren’t quite as tough as they used to be. There’s way better athletes, they’re much better prepared, but some of these guys, they don’t have that grit.”
