UFC Tonight reported that Josh Barnett had suffered an undisclosed knee injury, but had completed his recovery and is now looking forward to making his return to the octagon.
"The Warmaster" is angry, healthy, and looking to get back in the UFC octagon as soon as possible.
UFC heavyweight Josh Barnett has been away from the cage since his first round KO loss to Travis Browne back at UFC 168 in December. The knockout, which occurred from Browne's vicious elbows when Barnett shot for a takedown in the opening frames, was a disappointing one for Josh, and he is looking to erase that memory and regain the momentum he had garnered over the past couple of years.
While he would rather have stepped into the cage sooner, Barnett had suffered an undisclosed knee injury in a February training session and had been rehabilitating it ever since. Now fully recovered, he is looking for worthy match-up to continue his gradual climb up the heavyweight ranks.
To occupy his time while in recovery, Barnett was away filming a straight-to-DVD movie in Romania with Steven Seagal and Vinnie Jones titled "Mercenary: Absolution."
