As soon as Josh Barnett signed with the UFC this was a fight that I knew would be made. It just makes too much sense - two ex-champs, pretty good on the feet, and awesome on the ground. They are like mirror images. I want to guess a draw would happen because I am having so much trouble deciding, but I will predict that Barnett gets himself in trouble with a takedown. Mir wins it by 2nd round submission, likely an armbar. Mandatory Credit: Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE
Once again, the UFC has put together a pretty awesome card for Labor Day Weekend. While the preliminary card lacks a little luster, I am very excited about every single fight on the main card. I am going to limit my predictions to the fights that are televised and do my best to predict what will happen this weekend. Here is how I think UFC 164 will go down.
