Highly ranked heavyweight Josh Barnett (21-5), who's competed just once in the past 16 months, will next fight May 18 at World Victory Road's "Sengoku II" event.
The Japanese-based organization made the announcement earlier today.
An opponent hasn't been named for Barnett, who competed at the first Sengoku event and defeated Hidehiko Yoshida in March.
Barnett, a former UFC heavyweight champion and longtime PRIDE fighter, isn't the only big name appearing on the card, which takes place at the Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo, Japan. LINK
