When Strikeforce ended the big question mark was whether or not former UFC Heavyweight champ Josh Barnett, and his $250,000 per fight asking price, would be making the jump back to the UFC. Barnett has had a checkered history with the promotion, having left under a cloud of failed drug tests and an unrepentant attitude that rubbed management the wrong way.

When Barnett spoke to Pat Miletich following his win over Nandor Guelmino at Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine, he said "I have no master." He repeated similar mercenary sentiments with his post-event interview with Ariel Helwani which you can see below.

Now it appears that Barnett has come to terms with the UFC because they'ved added a Josh Barnett fighter profile to the UFC.com site.

Barnett is a good edition to any HW devision. Shame he'll never get to hold the title because once he gets past the padding he'll get wrecked by the contenders in the devision.

This is so true.

This will likely be his finale, so long as he stays clean and puts on good fights I will watch him...won't root for him but I will watch. He will destroy any of the lower level guys for sure, top level guys can beat him of course but he is extremely tough to finish.

I don't like to make bold predictions, but Barnett will be a UFC champion again
