I really hope Mir wins this fight. Barnett's top game is great, but so is Mir's guard. Barnett has one good win in the last 7 years, not sure why this would be that much of an upset if he loses, Mir generally only loses to the elite and I'm not convinced Josh is still in that category.

Barnett has only lost to elite guys his whole career. Never lost to anyone that wasn't elite. Mir certainly isn't elite.

See how easy that is?

Barnett hasn't done shit in the last 7 years except beat Kharitonov. At least Mir has numerous quality wins including two over the "elite" who have beat Barnett.

Yes, it is that easy.

Mir wont be able to take him down if he starts getting beat standing wile Barnett can take Mir down when he needs to.

Mir has some of the best subs in the game but I dont think Barnett is going to gameplan into hes strengths. Ether way im expecting some carnage. I cant say it would shock me to see either man win.

40-50lbs is a bit much but he has fought everywhere from 240lbs up to over 260lbs.

He was carry a lot more fat when he was 250lbs back in the day. Now he's a fairly lean high 250's....

TRT is a helluva drug

Alright taking bets now. I'll put up any avatar or image for an entire month sans Anderson getting knocked out, submitted, beat up, etc. All for ONE MILLION CREDITS. I pick Barnett btw. Any takers.

As an admin I could probably re-up my credits, but I'm going to do this the old fashioned way. I blame The Reem and a few other upsets for putting me in this position...haha.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

I hope its a great grappling match, with Mir being subbed or having his head beat into the mat

You look like you go on wiki to predict fights.

Yea, Mir beat Nog. An old Nog. Who before he got a miracle sub was getting TRASHED like no one else. He was a punching bag.

When was the last time Mir looked good? Kongo?

Oh wait, you are a Zuffa Zombie. Nevermind. Mir is a UFC name. Mir has been on your TV for years where as Barnett hasn't. So of course Mir has the better resume.

Shhhh, don't try to analyze a fight using what actually goes on in the cage! That isn't allowed here. You are supposed to go to Wikipedia. Then look and see who they have fought lately. If one guy has fought tougher fighters then of course he will win. That is how you breakdown a fight. Didn't you know this? Are you new here?
