Barnett should win on paper and in the Octagon, ring, street, etc. Barnett will TKO Mir. He just can't get cocky and play with fire on the ground since that's his usual game; takedown, GNP. Unless Mir's hurt badly. This would be good, because it'll set up a match between Mir vs Overeem. Very winnable for Overeem because Mir is slow and doesn't have the best gas tank either. I can see two of em huffing and puffing in the 3rd or 5th...hahahaha.

I have Mir by TKO in the second round. I think his striking is better by a decent bit.

I am leaning Mir but wouldn't be surprised either way.

I think Mir has a little better striking and on the ground he has more dangerous submissions so Barnett may not want to take the fight there.

I actually expect this fight to be a boring display of crappy boxing leading to a decision.

I think Mir's striking is awful. That isn't to say Barnett has good striking either. But these guys sort of cancel eachother out. The difference here is Barnett can take one hell of a beating, Mir cannot. Barnett has a better gas tank. Barnett has the ability to take him down and be on top.

Barnett wins.

Barnett by GNP Mir's TDD is nonexistent....his catch wrestling acumen should defend against Mir's submissions.
