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.

I read somewhere that the rumored opponents could be Naoya Ogawa or Maricio Cruz

He should fight Roger Gracie. Gracie has an absolutely incredible resume when it comes to jiu jitsu. Yeah he only has one fight but if it goes to the ground he is dangerous to anyone, even Barnett
