The podcast comment is in reference to Barnett posting a message to Twitter yesterday advertising his pdocast "Josh Barnett Conquers The World" on FOX Sports, iTunes and SoundCloud. Barnett and Silva have had a long-running feud and Silva recently called for a fight with Barnett. Barnett responded by telling MMA Fighting that he wasn't interested.
"For me, I'm not trying to help this guy out," Barnett said. "...I don't like him, and I don't like the way he approached anything about what he did back in his Strikeforce days and all of that. I had never even talked about this dude. He brought up all this stuff, made this huge kerfuffle, so my response is: F him. I'm not going to help him gain any ground in any way, even by losing to me. I'm not going to get him paid. I'm not going to going to get him anything, if I can help it."
