1. He lost a lot of money for the Fedor fight and a chance to solidify himself as the top heavyweight fighter in MMA.

This fight was probably one of, if not, the highest-paying fights Josh was ever going to get in his life. Whether you believe the figure is $300,000 or $500,000, that’s a lot of money to make for one fight. He’s not going to get that money anywhere else – not in Japan and not in UFC. ... What Barnett has to hope for is that there is still interest in Japan to book this fight on New Year’s Eve

Back to Japan I think is a no brainer, he can do his pro-wrestling and fight cans like Hidehiko Yoshida for sengoku.
