Josh Barnett won the UFC heavyweight title in March of 2002, defeating Randy Couture by TKO. Barnett then left the organization to fight overseas and returning ten years later, feels like he will finally defend that heavyweight title he won ten years ago:

“When I walk in the ring, in my mind, I’m making my first title defense. That’s the way I see it,” he said on a recent episode of MMA’s Great Debate.

Barnett’s last UFC outing was in March 2002 when he stopped Randy Couture in the second round to win a belt that he would subsequently be stripped of after testing positive for a banned substance.

Barnett went on to fight for Pride, where he faced the likes of Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, Mark Hunt and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. The 35-year-old compared Mir’s career fighting in the UFC unfavorably with his own, while he competed in Japan.

“We’ve always been in different places, even when he was fighting for titles. No one ever took my belt from me, so I don’t know what belt they were swinging around, but that wasn’t the UFC heavyweight title as far as I was concerned and I was off at Pride fighting the top dudes in the world at the time.”

Affliction folded because they were already well on the way to folding, and out of desperation put all their eggs in one basket. Phone Post 3.0

I may be a joke but what I said was factual.

He was caught twice using a banned substance.

He was stripped of the belt as a result of this.

A 30 second google search will prove this.

If you dont think that losing the main event in your second outting as a fight promotion caused Affliction to fold then so be it. Barnett getting popped had direct impact on that event not happening.

I think its funny how quick people are to forget that Barnett was popped yet they bring into question Cyborg's entire career after getting popped once.
