Three Time Steroid Cheat Josh Barnett Signs With UFC After All
by Scott "Kubryk" Sawitz on May 22, 2013

The UFC Heavyweight division just got a big addition as Josh Barnett, who last fought in the UFC at UFC 36, has resigned with the promotion. This per MMA Junkie. This came after an initial courtship between the two failed due to an inability to agree to a contract.

USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with promotion officials that former UFC heavyweight champion Barnett has signed a new multi-fight deal with the promotion and is expected to make his return to the octagon later this year. An official announcement is expected soon.

Barnett would beat Randy Couture at UFC 36 for the UFC heavyweight title but a post fight drug test would reveal three banned substances in his system. He would piss hot again two weeks out from an Affliction fight with Fedor Emelianenko in 2009. He would also fail one at UFC 34, as well.

Barnett’s last fight was a win over Nandor Guelmino on the last Strikeforce card.
