Barnett Test Comes Back Negative, Nastula Fight Is On
The medical tests required for Josh Barnett to compete under a Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) sanctioned fight have come in, and the news is good.
Barnett, who was required to supply a clean drug test due to his failing his last drug test in his last fight under NSAC regulations, got his results today and the test came back negative.
This officially clears Josh Barnett to compete this Saturday night at the Dreamstage Entertainment (DSE) debut show in the United States, PRIDE 32 "The Real Deal" against former Olympic gold medalist and legend in Judo, Pawel Nastula.
