Josh Barnett is back from Japan, following his seventh fight of 2006. Chris Wilson, a member of the Portland Wolfpack in the IFL, is in Brazil, but they both join Damon & Jeff tonight, live on MMAWeeklyRadio.com at 6pm PT / 9pm ET.
Currently ranked the #4 heavyweight in the world by MMAWeekly.com, Barnett had a very successful year. He went 5-2, with his only losses at the hands of Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, who went on to capture the Pride Open Weight Grand Prix title, and a decision to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (whom he had defeated earlier in the year) on New Year’s Eve. Barnett’s victories, however, were impressive. Over the course of the year, he defeated Olympic Gold Medalist Pawel Nastula, Mark Hunt, Aleksander Emelianenko, Kazuhiro Nakamura, and the aforementioned Nogueira.
Wilson, who will be calling in from Brazil, is coming off of a knockout victory over Rory Markham at the IFL World Team Championship finals. It was a strong performance by Wilson, although his team, the Portland Wolfpack, lost the championship 4-1. Wilson is also the head kickboxing instructor at Team Quest in Oregon and is currently featured on MMAWeekly TV with the Tip of the Week.
Listen to both Barnett and Wilson, live tonight at 6pm PT / 9pm ET on MMAWeeklyRadio.com as they join Damon & Jeff.
