    Former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett is a free agent, and he says he recently got an offer in the mail that just might be too good to be true.

    “I did receive a very mysterious letter in the mail the other day, about an island, at a secret location,” Barnett told reporters on Monday at the Quintet 3 open workouts. “They would fly us out to Hong Kong first and then charter a boat out to this island. They say that they’ve held tournaments there before. It sounds familiar. In this one, I just hope I don’t end up in a room full of mirrors.”

    If that story rings a bell, it is, of course, the plot to the classic Bruce Lee film“Enter the Dragon,” so it sure is a shame that letter, sent a good five years before Barnett was born, arrived in his mailbox about 45 years too late.

    In the meantime, Barnett, one of the sport’s true free spirits, is being careful in picking his next spot....

    I will always have enough time in my fight night for a Josh Barnett post fight interview.
