Heavyweight, Josh Barnett’s Profile Added to UFC’s Official Website

Former UFC heavyweight champion, Josh Barnett’s profile appeared on UFC’s official website earlier today. The promotion released a list of Strikeforce fighters making the switch to the octagon earlier this week and one name was absent, former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett.

Bernett, who is considered one of the top 10 heavyweights in the world, went 3-1 for the former California-based promotion with three submission wins.

This is far from confirmation of “The Warmaster” signing with the Las Vegas promotion, but it certainly makes you think when we seen Barnett’s profile emerge on UFC.com.

Barnett reached the final of the Strikeforce heavyweight grand-prix with victories over Brett Rogers and Sergei Kharitonov. He lost the finale fight to Daniel Cormier via unanimous decision. Last Saturday he defeated Nandor Guelmino via arm-triangle choke in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
