Yea I have been hoping for Mir vs. Barnett ever since I thought he had a chance to re-join the UFC. Skill for skill they match up well. Mir is perhaps better with subs. Barnett better with wrestling. Pretty even on the feet. But Barnett has a cardio, chin, and will to win advantage which makes me pick him. Would be fun to see if Mir could tap him though.
I see something real special in Cormier. He has that Fedor calm ( I know he is called the black Fedor) but he does. It is from being in far more important bouts so far in his career with his high high level wrestling. I honestly think he will have better hands by the time they would ever get a chance to fight. I think he could out-wrestle Cain, strongly believe that.
But this fight won't happen. I think Cormier is going to be tough for JDS or Bones. May not win but he is a real threat.
I keep forgetting Safferdine is a WW. That is what happens in the UFC though, LWs look like WW...and so on. I'll give Safferdine, Alves...and I will say Safferdine take a decision.
