It looks like Josh Barnett is not a member of UFC roster anymore. His UFC release should be finalized in the coming days. Josh claims USADA had a very serious influence on his release. The longtime Heavyweight competitor, who returned to the UFC after the Strikeforce buyout back in 2011, will probably have to continue the career outside of the octagon. Josh Barnett has been a hot topic when it comes to prohibited substances many times. (via MMAMania.com) \u00a0\u00a0\u201cIt\u2019s true that I have asked for my release and we are discussing the terms now,\u201d Barnett told ESPN. \u201cZuffa has been fantastic and above-board since I re-signed with the company. Every promise made has been kept and I have no disparaging words for them.\u201d Blame United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). \u201cAfter everything I went through with USADA, and my vindication in that case, I don\u2019t feel comfortable giving the control necessary to USADA that would continue my career in the UFC,\u201d he said. Josh Barnett (35-8) was positive for ostarine during an out-of-competition test, which was administered on December 9, 2016. However, luck didn\u2019t turn back on him and he was cleared by an arbitrator last March. Unfortunately, Josh was out of competition since September 2016, when he defeated Andrei Arlovski. It would be interesting to see what happens next, and is there a future for Josh. But we believe the return to some Japanese promotion sounds fair. What do you think, which promotion is the perfect place for Josh Barnett if he decides to continue his MMA career?
