Former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett has four days to add his name to the agenda for an upcoming meeting of the California State Athletic Commission and is unsure whether he wants to do so.

The CSAC denied Barnett a license this past July to fight Fedor Emelianenko at "Affliction: Trilogy" on Aug. 1 when Barnett tested positive for a designer steroid. Barnett immediately declared his innocence and informed the commission of his intent to appeal the decision.

But after four delays to his appeal process, Barnett said he may simply wait until June, when he said he is re-eligible to apply for a fight license.

Makes sence. If it was me I would just wait. Why go through the headaches with their atheletic commission? They didnt belive Sean Sherk either.
