Another return engagement is now set for World Victory Road Sengoku 2 on May 18 in Japan: Josh Barnett, who fought on the first WVR event, has been announced for the upcoming event. Opponent TBA but sources indicate it's likely to be either Japanese judo star Naoya Ogawa or or Brazilian Marcio Cruz.

I wouldn't mind seeing Barnett fight Cruz...he may not be a top contender, but he's better than anyone Fedor has been fighting. I'm still not 100% convinced Fedor/Sylvia will go down.

Of course, less than 10 minutes after I post that we get news on here that it is official. Being the negative bastard that I am, I still don't believe it until I see it.

Cruz is boring but at least it's an indication that Barnett is interested in fighting. Not the Hong Man Choi's of the world either but actual Mixed Martial Artists. I'd like to see Barnett stateside to fight Heath Herring, or Big Nog. Maybe let him sharpen his teeth on Kongo. I don't like Kongo.

I would just like to see Barnett in the UFC. God knows they can use him.

I included Marcio Cruz in my list of guys i would put in a Grand Prix made up of non UFC HWs in another thread. I wouldnt say i would be ecstatic to see the fight but at least Barnett is getting some top competition

Updating this item, Barnett's opponent will be neither, according to Sherdog. It's Jeff Monson.

Monson vs. Barnet is a great matchup
