UFC 36 Worlds Collide mma video of Josh Barnett Vs Randy Couture for the heavyweight championship. The fight took place on March 22nd of 2002 in Nevada.
After this fight Barnett was stripped of the UFC Heavyweight title when he allegedly tested positive for steroids during a mandatory post-fight drug test by the Nevada Athletic Commission. Due to violations of testing protocol, it was impossible to validate or verify the results based on the original samples. Barnett who had already taken a previous drug test four months before the fight disputed the results and demanded a third independent drug test due to the fact that the substance allegedly found in his system would have been detectable for at least 18 months. Three months after the second drug test Barnett went through a third test, performed by an expert from the International Olympic Committee, with negative results. After several months without any outcome being decided Barnett left the UFC.
