Silva Blasts Barnett: ‘I’ll teach him the lessons his mother didn’t’

June 25, 2014 12:54 pm by BJPENN.COM News

“I woke up this morning and saw his interview. He’s giving excuses because he’s scared. That’s the word. He says he won’t fight me because he doesn’t want to give me name and money with this fight, but the truth is he’s scared.

“I think he should take a look at the rankings. I’m ranked at no. 4 and he’s no. 5. The last guy that beat him got knocked out by me.”

“He crossed a line with his words in that interview. It was unprofessional, but it was good because he gave me another reason to train hard. I was so pumped up this morning that I went to the gym and trained even more. That’s how I like. If he wasn’t educated by his mother, I’ll teach him a lesson.”

A rivalry is brewing between Josh Barnett and ‘Bigfoot’ Silva.

In a new interview with’s Guilherme Cruz, ATT’s Silva responded to the recent back-and-forth he and Barnett find themselves engaged in.
