If Mir comes out aggressive on his feet and pressures Barnett to shoot in. He could do some damage. Or he can just K.O. Barnett, but Barnett isn't a slouch on his feet. He is a big guy, but if it hits the ground, or Barnett makes a mistake. Mir will submit him.

I don't think Mir has the ability to KO Barnett. I would be shocked.

Mir can definitely KO Barnett. And he is coming off of two losses against fighters who have excellent striking and strength. If Mir loses, I will be shocked.

I think you are completely wrong. Mir can't knock out Josh and you shouldn't be shocked if Josh wins. It's very possible that there was never a time where Mir was a better fighter then Josh. At any point.

I don't understand what people see in Mir's striking. I really am baffled. I have always classified Mir as a below average striker. Maybe I'm missing something.

Nope. Mir has probably always been better then josh. We really have no reason to think otherwise considering josh has beat cans and mir has been fighting quality opponents his entire career

They do have a very recent common opponent. I thought Josh looked much better vs DC then Mir did. Also Mir gets smashed by all the top fighters he faces. Sergei is more dangerous then CC(at that time) and Kongo.

Sergei is a bum. Josh got whooped by dc even though dc broke his hand in the first round. Mir just got put on the fence. Mir also beat nog twice. Mir has average striking but barnetts is even worse.. he just throws paws trying to clinch or set up a shot. If it goes to the ground mir wins and barnett has nothing for him standing... this is such an obvious mismatch idk why anyone gives barnett the edge in any discipline
