Barnett Withdraws License Application
Josh Gross of ESPN is reporting that Josh Barnett officially withdrew his license application with the California State Athletic Commission. According to Gross, because of the withdrawal, "CSAC can't sanction, suspend, fine Barnett. Matter is tabled unless Barnett asks for license in state requiring resolution of Calif. issues." He noted that "Coker & Barnett are playing system as it's designed," and that Barnett won't be able to fight in California, New Jersey, Nevada, and Ohio, amongst other states. He can fight in some other states like Georgia, Texas and Tennessee if he passes a drug test.
I don't even know what this means. Is Coker going to arrange Barnett's fights in safe venues? Is he out?
