Browne vs Barnett added to Ufc 168 (Dec 28, Las Vegas)

The much discussed Travis Browne vs Josh Barnett finally has a home,

The two will meet in Vegas, I think Barnett will overwhelm Browne and finish him with the 1st round.

PPV Card

Middleweight Championship Bout: Chris Weidman vs Anderson Silva
Women's Bantamweight Bout: Ronda Rousey vs Miesha Tate
Heavyweight bout: Travis Browne vs Josh Barnett

I could see Condit vs Brown added to this PPV or the main card of Fox 9

"A heavyweight bout between contenders Travis Browne and Josh Barnett has been added to UFC 168 at the MGM Grand on Dec. 28, sources close to the organization confirmed on Tuesday morning.

Browne has recorded two consecutive first-round knockout victories since his only career loss to Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, including a dramatic stoppage of Alistair Overeem in August. Barnett, who was stripped of the UFC heavyweight title and left the organization after a positive steriod test in 2002, finally returned after 11 years in August with a first-round knockout of Frank Mir.

The card, expected to be one of the biggest in the organization’s history, also includes the rematches between Anderson Silva and middleweight champion Chris Weidman as well as women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate."

Got to admit, this fight never crossed my mind yet makes so much sense. I'm taking Barnett here. Dudes incredibly durable. Aside from Minotauro (who hasn't got that much left) he's the last of the old guard still accomplishing sth.

I think Barnett wins. He is good enough to turn this into a grappling match where he should dominate.

Wouldn't be the first time Browne proved me wrong though. Or the second...

Barnett is about to derail this hype train Browne has got going for himself. Barnett will make this an ugly grappling match where he will control and smash Browne. I think Browne has the power to stop Barnett but I'm not sure he will have the chance to use that power. Either way its going to be a fun fight

Barnett is going to make this ugly, gritty, painful, and put a pressure on Browne that he wilts under. Will be highly entertaining

Done betting against Browne and not sold on the fact he won't be able to dance around him and use footwork and td defense to avoid josh
