MMA legend Josh Barnett was at the SDCC Gargamel x Grass Hut booth on Saturday meeting fans and signing autographs!
Josh Barnett x 100t
There are so many Kinnikuman and personal connections here is it crazy! A few of the reasons why this was hands down my most memorable experience at the Con this year:
- Josh is one of the most skilled and toughest dudes on the planet. I am a huge fan.
- He is a fan of Kinnikuman, and Yudetamago are big fans of his MMA and Pro Wrestling careers.
- Josh personally knows both members of Yudetamago.
- Both Yudetamago and Josh have done collaborations with Art Junkie.
- Art Junkie makes rad Kinnikuman shirts, and Kato-san is part of the Niku family.
- I just so happened to have an AACC x Art Junkie shirt (Josh is linked to both).
- Josh was so incredibly nice and cool the whole time we chatted ~ A true class act!
- This all went down at the Gargamel x Grass Hut booth (amazing guys and friends)!
On top of this awesome experience, here is a little more SDCC Gargamel x Mitari booth Kinnikuman action:
