LOL another guy who overrated Mir to no end. Mir is the better grappler? You know grappling includes wrestling don't you? Mir is not the better grappler. Barnett can keep it standing if he wants. He probably could get some TDs. And he wouldn't get sub'd if it is on the ground anyway.
Mir has the better striking? Yea, if he brings that awful head movement he did vs. Nog he will get dusted. He looked awful. What fights should I watch to see if Mir has decent strikes? The fact he caught Kongo who sucks anyway, with a shot when Kongo was so worried about the TD? Or when nothing happened for 2.5 rounds vs CC and he found a random knee to end it? Mir's striking sucks.
Barnett is waaaay tougher than Mir. Has a muuuuuuuch better chin. Has muuuuuuuuch more cardio. Has muuuuuch more wrestling. Is experienced enough and good enough to not get caught in a sub. Striking is basically a wash. But I doubt Mir hurts Barnett bad. Barnett is way more durable than Mir.
