On a new Josh Nason's Punch-Out, I welcome back "The Warmaster" Josh Barnett for our first conversation in nearly seven years.

There was a lot to talk about with the former UFC heavyweight champion, mainly Josh Barnett's Bloodsport, a sold out GCW event scheduled for Thursday of WrestleMania week in New Jersey. Among the things we covered in this 40-minute conversation:

  • His thoughts on today's music scene
  • How the 'Bloodsport' opportunity came about and his insistence on playing an active role in putting the show together
  • How Frank Mir got added to the show in what will be his pro wrestling debut
  • Josh's main event match at Bloodsport against Minoru Suzuki
  • His thoughts on the current wrestling landscape and how much has changed over the last few years
  • Some insight into his fighting future (hint: it's happening)
  • Whether he would do anything differently about the Jay White/NJPW situation in Long Beach.
