    Well damn. I would of loved to see him in Bellator's tournament; unfortunate timing with his suspension and release

    Not like he was doing much. Ended up being a non-factor.

    Probably refused to sew some fight kits together in the ufc/reebok sweat shop institute between fights.

    Ingrate.

    He should sue USADA for time lost.

    "Fired" seems silly since he could have, and likely did, request his release.

    Back on the sauce and a one way ticket to Japan I suppose. Can't think of anyone that can give him a fight in Rizin though. Is Kharitonov still alive?

    since he retired it doesn't matter.

    this isn't a hot take like saying conor is retired. cause josh removed him self from usada testing pool saying he was retired that why his case took so long there was no rush to get it done.

    UFC is garbage for still bringing Brock back but dont want to pay a skilled veteran like Barnett.

    Another victim of UFC's most disastrous decision - USADA.

    Prediction:

    • Barnett signs with Bellator
    • Barnett becomes alternative for HW Grand Prix and fills in for the final fight
    • Barnett pops for PEDs the week of the fight and card is cancelled
    • Bellator folds
