    Shit. We actually might.

    EDIT: I almost hope they sign it, invest a lot in that fight, then cancel the event because Barnett tests positive.

    One of my favorite Barnett moments is when Cormier treated him like his woman for twenty-five minutes. I think that truly hurt @MBC ’s feelings.

    Josh Barnett gets no suspension after arbitration in USADA doping case

    Josh Barnett is free and clear of his issues with USADA.

    The former UFC heavyweight champion received only a public reprimand following arbitration in his USADA doping case, the agency announced Friday. That means Barnett will receive no suspension and can return to the Octagon right away.

    Barnett, 40, tested positive for the banned substance ostarine in an out-of-competition drug test stemming from a sample collected Dec. 9, 2016. Barnett and his legal team were able to show the arbitrator that the ostarine came via a tainted supplement. Richard H. McLaren, the chief arbitrator of McLaren Global Sport Solutions, Inc., heard the case.

    “Given the source was established to be a contaminated supplement, along with the athlete’s care and diligence concerning the nutritional products consumed, the arbitrator determined that a public reprimand was appropriate,” USADA stated in the release.

    Ostarine is not approved by the FDA and is illegally sold in the United States as a performance-enhancer, per USADA. It’s not available as a prescription medication in any country, but has been found as a declared and undeclared ingredient in many dietary supplements in the United States.

    That comment was about a Russian fighter who just got the first USADA liftetime ban in the UFC. I forget his name because he hadn't competed in a few years (due to a different drug suspension).
