I see Frank taking this one. Mir, in my opinion, is a very underrated fighter by most of the "online community"... and on a personal level, I have never been impressed with Barnett. He's just a very good wrestler, and I guess like always, that's not my cup of tea.

I honestly haven't got a clue. Barnet is just a quality fighter with no OMG impressive skills and Mir is so god damn inconsistent, but when Mir is on it's really hard to pick against him. Haven't got a clue, I don't even really have an expected way this fight will go.

When has Mir been on last? Vs. Roy Nelson? What were his "OMG impressive skills" in that one? Riding Roy around like a horse?

Seriously. Mir isn't inconsistent. He simply has looked top level since he beat Kongo years ago. Again, not sure what Frank Mir people have watched. I have watched a man get his head beat in. A clumsy goof he is too big for his own good that he can't move well. He gasses. Bad chin. Terrible defense. No head movement. No wrestling.

Mir is pretty susceptible to the same gameplan.
Clinch with him and pressure him against the cage with strikes a la Carwin and Cormier.

I have no doubt Barnett can do the same.

Having a feeling Barnett is more of a savage. He can dictate if the fight goes on the ground or not, and I don't if Mir is that far ahead standing.

I dont understand where all this Barnette hype is coming from, he is a very underwhelming fighter.. However style wise i can see him getting the decision here with his wrestling..

War Mir!!!

Imo, this will be an upset in the fighting world if Barnett loses. Not so much in the mainstream cuz not many people know Barnett as well as they do with Mir.

Barnett has such a heavy bass and deadly top game. If Frank had no submission it would be a 99% victory for Barnett. I'd still give Barnett a 75% chance of victory as long as he doesn't overcommitt on the ground. Ironically he has been submitted by Crocop in a very strange armlock submission in the guard.

It would be nice if Mir showed up off the roids. Barnett wouldn't be able to stand with a slimmer and faster Mir and wouldn't want any part of him on the ground either. Slow motion Mir gives Barnett a chance in this fight.
