Mark Hunt wants Josh Barnett next

I was thinking, Josh Barnett, he’s one above me at number five, maybe Dana can put me and him on that show, on Sydney,” Hunt said on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour.

There are several obstacles to putting together the fight on the Nov. 8 card, of course. Barnett’s been coy about when he’ll return to the Octagon, and he’s already defeated Hunt, winning via Kimura in the quarterfinal round of the 2006 PRIDE Open Weight Grand Prix.

But if Hunt gets his way, he’ll get another crack at “The Warmaster.”

“I love rematches,” Hunt said. “I’ve never lost a rematch, Josh Barnett, me and you my friend, we’ve got a date. He’s No. 5 in the world, I want to fight guys in the top 10. I’d like to fight and get close to that title shot, That’s all I’m interested in my whole purposes is to fight for the world title. He’s one above me, so why don’t you put him and me together.”
