    I am just now watching his old fight against Big Country. Buffer announced Josh as the former UFC heavyweight champion. I admit that I never knew he was champion. What was his championship reign like? Thank you

    It was short and dishonorable, to be honest.

    Was way larger than Couture and roided up and still almost lost that fight.

    He was never champ. He got caught rudi g after the fight and was stripped. Should have never counted as winning g the title.

    he popped after the fight so he wasnt champ for long

    pretty forgettable, people seem to remember sylvia, arlovski, and coutures reign as champ before they remember barnetts
