Pure ownage by Barnett. I thought the stoppage was fine. Josh typically has a smart concise gameplan, he looked real good Saturday night. I look forward to Browne vs Barnett.

I like MMA less because of this forum

Might have been a tad early, but not a horrible stoppage by any stretch.

The reason it's an issue is because sometimes we get stoppages like this one, and other times we get really late ones; even ones where many agree "it could have been stopped earlier" but the other guy comes back to win.

Muddies the water a bit, that's all.

Mir really, really sucks with his back to the cage... Nog almost knocked him out, Cormier stalled him, and now Barnett finished him... Guys have clearly seen this and will continue to exploit it.

I dont think he's going to beat Barnett for the same reason I thought Mir wouldn't beat him.

If Barnett's losing the stand up he'll take Browne down and man hump him until he finds the opening and we all know what happens then. That said he's never had a untouchable chin or great striking defense.

Still it would be a good scrap but what if Barnett wins? Title shot? Because I would piss myself laughing IF Josh somehow beat Cain.

Thats a pipe dream I guess because the road to a title shot has to go through JDS i would think especially because dana dislikes Barnett and its not that Josh cant take JDS down and destroy him I just dont think it would happen.
