Josh Barnett is an American heavyweight mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter and a professional wrestler. Barnett became the youngest UFC (heavyweight) champion in history after defeating Randy Couture in early 2002. After losing his UFC title, Barnett began his overseas career as a professional wrestler in the New Japan Pro Wrestling organization, but he also competed in MMA fights in both Pride and Pancrase in Japan. While in Pancrase, Barnett won its open-weight Grand Prix title. By winning this title, Barnett became one of the few fighters to be a titleholder in both Pancrase and the UFC. In 2008, Barnett joined the newly organized MMA promotion, Sengoku, and, in 2008 and 2009, fought in a number of Affliction promotions.
