It didn't take long for Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson to start insulting each other. The UFC recently announced that the two heavyweights will be coaches for a new reality show, "Road to UFC: Japan", and will compete against each other on a September card in the country. Right away, Nelson took to Twitter to take a jab at Barnett's past issues with steroids:

This is Josh Barnett we're talking about, so it obviously didn't take long for him to respond:

Barnett (33-7) hasn't competed in the octagon since a December 2013 loss to Travis Browne. Nelson (20-11) is coming off a March decision loss to Alistair Overeem.

UFC Fight Night: Japan takes place on September 27th.
