A good first step back into the octagon. Log in to Reply Axe Murderer September 1, 2013 baby face still has it Log in to Reply pourmis September 1, 2013 josh looked impressive against a very well prepared Mir Log in to Reply Benny September 1, 2013 Thanks for the upload Bruno! time for Frank to make a career decision here,call it a day or else…no way he’s dropping down to 205… guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens… Log in to Reply leo505 September 1, 2013 glad for josh. I am a fan since the old days, but what a weeeeeeak stop. we should stop shity refs Log in to Reply damnitrudy September 1, 2013 Too bad Mir didn’t get up faster, I would have loved for Barnett to punish him some more. Log in to Reply bobsbag September 1, 2013 Barnett looks huge at 155! Log in to Reply marvelous mad madam mim September 1, 2013 good call by the ref, but also a bad call because i wanted to see murrr get brutalized, barnett would of bashed his head in lol. Log in to Reply marvelous mad madam mim September 1, 2013 barnett 155lbs? man talk about serous weight cut haha Log in to Reply Pikachumanson September 1, 2013 Stoppage was early. Log in to Reply OscarMayhem September 1, 2013 Mir dropped like a sack of potatoes. Sure, he recovered quickly as he staggered on his way up, but the stoppage was fine. Not controversial at all. Log in to Reply pangea12 September 1, 2013 The stoppage was good but ya never know what would of happened. I could see Mir taking a knee and getting back up while getting pummeled but I think the ref made a good decision based on what he saw. Log in to Reply ken shiro September 1, 2013 Yes Josh YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!That was a straight rape!!! Log in to Reply Machete September 1, 2013 Mir had absolutely nothing for Barnett. Barnett imposed his will on him from the jump start. Log in to Reply CaptainObvious September 1, 2013 Early stoppage? Coulda been an early death for Mir if the ref hadn’t jumpe in. Bunch of Mir fan-boys calling it an early stoppage. Hahah! WAR MASTER HAD HIS WAY WITH MIR. Get over it. Mir got ****in dominated ven coming out of a great camp and in top notch shape. OWNED. Log in to Reply steamer September 1, 2013 I was WRONG WRONG WRONG! Barnett never tried any kind of lay and pray. He just flat out beat Franks ass. wow Log in to Reply Dr. September 1, 2013 Mir was able to recover because the ref jumped in when he went limp. Had the ref NOT got in there, Josh would have put more shots on Mir and he would’ve likely been in worse danger. But the ref jumped in and we’ll never know. The ref erred on the side of caution. Disappointing for sure because these guys aren’t making burgers in there – they are warriors. Let them fight. Log in to Reply BigNogOnMir September 1, 2013 Mir has a remarkable ability to recover quickly. I remember my broken arm after I thought that Frank was almost done. Log in to Reply kryptonite September 1, 2013 bad stop when you see some fights like overeem two weeks ago pounding away that was a crap could got a couple more shots off bad stop. Log in to Reply Joel September 1, 2013 I think Mir got pissed because he knows he’s in danger of being cut from the ufc… Log in to Reply trepidation11 September 1, 2013 Nice, good job Barnett! I would have liked to see a few more hits before the ref stopped it so that Mir and Mir fans wouldn’t have anything to complain about, but it wasn’t too bad of a stop. There’s been way worse. No controversy from me though. Log in to Reply cory September 1, 2013 another really early stoppage… Mir did drop, but I don’t think It was because he was Out or anything..more so, as strategy..kind of like when people shoot after getting hurt. After watching the replay a few times, the shot honestly didn’t look that powerful.. Log in to Reply cory September 1, 2013 time and time again we’ve seen fighters come back from stuff like this, and even win the fight. It’s really unfair to have it stopped so early. Log in to Reply Sam September 1, 2013 Early stoppage… Ref messed up… Though Mir lost I think it would have been a better fight if he allowed it to go on for another 20 seconds Log in to Reply KUKA September 1, 2013 First off,thanks Bruno. Without you where would I be? Second off. Couldn’t leave comments about Pettis fight. What a shock. I would type more but my rib is fractured just from watching those body kicks. Log in to Reply Noel September 1, 2013 Textbook on how to attack Mir. Where Cormier doesn’t have the offense to take Mir out, Barnett does. Barnett v. JDS would be an amazing fight, I think. Barnett v. Cain and Cain would out-wrestle him and pin him to the cage. At I like @cory saying Mir dropping like a sack of potatoes is “strategy”. I laughed. Log in to Reply Tankless September 1, 2013 Perfect stoppage Mir would have been killed if it was to go on …..do you really think Mir would of jumped right back up with Barnett hammer fisting his peanut into dust???? Mirs been knocked out 7 times and he was knocked out here and teh ref saved him from more damage. Im a huge fan of Barnett , love to see him go Cormier again without the broken hand. Log in to Reply JBox3 September 1, 2013 Good stoppage. May have only been a flash, but Mir’s head was just dangling there waiting for more punishment. A quick recovery by a seasoned fighter does not equal a bad stoppage. Log in to Reply MRBARBARYCOAST September 1, 2013 HE WAS OUT!!!! Log in to Reply nexstory September 1, 2013 The knee caused a flash knockout. Mir was in a very compromised position with Barnett in both mounting and striking control, plus with Barnett’s first round cardio not even peaking, no way could Mir have gotten back into the dance. One or two more shots would have given a double exclamation point to the finish, but that’s all. Log in to Reply Dave September 2, 2013 wow josh barnet came in better than I expected! Log in to Reply Joe Dog September 2, 2013 I expected Mir to come with that sh*t-eating smirk like did after Lesnar kicked his arse. Instead, he looked desperate, probahbly aware that his place in the top ten UFC HWs is history. Log in to Reply ericsson September 2, 2013 what a stupid ****ing stoppage Log in to Reply kill666 September 2, 2013 Barnett is really good with the ground and pound if the referee let the fight going Barnet would finish Mir up. Great Fight for Josh Barnett Log in to Reply vic77 September 2, 2013 beautiful close range work by Josh…..”dirty boxing” is an antiquated term that should be retired in mma cause nothing dirty about it Log in to Reply Mr. Obvious September 3, 2013 Both of them looked old and slow to me. Barnett is guna get smoked as soon as he fights a legit HW. Log in to Reply Kaution35 September 3, 2013 Mir looks “leaner” without the muscle mass. Granted he’s still 248 but it makes me wonder if he is considering dropping down to 205? If Joe Riggs can do it, so should rank and while he’s at it take Pat Barry with him.
