Aside from being one of the best Heavyweight fighters in all of mixed martial arts (MMA), Josh Barnett is also an avid Heavy Metal aficionado.
The bruising brawler recently sat down with MMA Noise to list his top Heavy Metal bands, which may include some that you may never have heard of. Unless, of course, your as knowledgeable of the genre as “The Warmaster” is.
His top 6:
6. The Gits
5. Cattle Decapitation
4. Goat Whore
3. The Bronx
2. Everytime I Die
1. Bolt Thrower
Josh also revealed he gets the heads up and previews of tons of new music before it hits the stands by being on promo release lists.
So just how metal is Barnett?
In 2013, he threw a fan from the stage and into the crowd during a concert. In 2014, “The Babyfaced Assassin” won The Revolver Golden Gods “Most Metal Athlete Award,” beating out the likes of the NBA’s Stephen Curry, freestyle motocross athlete, Derek Garland, and NHL’s Tuukka Rask.
It was his first win after three nominations.
