News came in late last night and into this morning involving, Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson. No, they aren’t fighting each other what a great match that would be. To separate events happened. It seems Barnett is finally returning to the UFC after a lengthy absence, and Big Country will be stepping in to help save a PPV.
Barnett, the former UFC champion hasn’t fought in the promotion since winning the title in 2002. Barnett defeated Randy Couture to win the belt at UFC 36, only to be stripped of the title for failing a drug test afterwards. He’s spent the last decade traveling the world in various promotions proving to be one of the top fighters. He will now get to do so with his brand new multi-fight deal.
