|Josh Barnett och Dana White|
I ett uttalande till Ron Kruck på HDNet berättar White att på senare tid har han och Barnett har som han uttrycker det "playing nice" med varandra.
Han berättar vidare att om Barnett vinner tungviktsturneringen mot Daniel Cormier den 19 maj på Strikeforce: Barnett vs. Cormier så ser det ljust ut för Barnett.
"The way that Showtime wants to do it is when that fight finally happens, whoever wins it, they wanna do another fight on Showtime, so that guy would probably come to the UFC. We'll see what happens, you know? Josh and I have been playing nice with each other for a little while, since he got into the UFC. It's more than just, 'Does he win? Does he do this?' You gotta be able to come to terms with the guy and be able to deal with him. If he wins the fight, I can't see why he wouldn't come here, unless we weren't able to make a deal with him."
