In the epic struggle for survival

With oppression fed by a burning hate"

Bellator has yet to announce a date and opponent for Barnett’s promotional debut.

Barnett (35-8) hasn’t fought under MMA rules since September of 2016, when he scored a third-round submission over Andrei Arlovski in the main event of UFC Hamburg in Germany.

The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced later that year that he had been flagged for a potential anti-doping failure. It took 16 months until an arbitrator “determined that a public reprimand was appropriate” instead of a suspension, USADA announced in March 2018.

Barnett has been active outside of the MMA world since 2016, competing in grappling and pro-wrestling matches. A veteran in the game, the former UFC, Strikeforce, Pride, Affliction, Dream and Sengoku fighter holds wins over current Bellator heavyweights Frank Mir, Roy Nelson and Sergei Kharitonov.
