    Barnett hasn't had a fight in a year, and he last loss via KO. Sherdog dropped him from the rankings due to inactivity.

    Is he coming back? I think he retires soon.

    This. I remember seeing him reply to a fan on Twitter about being back sometime this year.

    Not only did he compete, he submitted Dean Lister who had not been submitted in competition in literally like ten fucking years. Not a huge fan of Josh but based on his metamoris pwnage he looked pretty freaking good. Should be noted he was bigger than Lister though.

    I don't think so. He just has other stuff on his plate like the pro wrestling in japan. He'll definitely stick around for another few paydays before calling it a career. I don't know if he has any realistic shot at the title anymore, but you never know. The division's still thin enough that favorable conditions might pop up for him down the road.

    Was also weird he stopped his podcast. He said there will be news on that soon. He always seems to have multiple projects though, hopefully hes just working on stuff to secure his post fight career. He has a few good fights left in him though.
