    I disagree. I’m not saying Barnett is gonna lose, I just don’t think he can take it easily. It’s a bad stylistic matchup for Barnett. On the feet Cormier has lots of power and his striking has looked awesome his past few fights. He also has the ability to keep the fight on the feet, where Barnett might have some trouble. If Barnett can get it to the ground though it will be very interesting due to his unreal submission grappling. He is one crafty mofo in the takedown department and the submission wrestling, which could actually give Cormier problems because of the uniqueness of Barnetts catch wrestling. But I just don’t know if Barnett will be able to get it to the ground, Cormier is a serious wrestler to have to get down.

    Oh yeah probably should’ve said that after all that rambling.
    I feel that Cormier will win the fight by outstriking Josh, But as a fan I want Josh to win all the way,

    That title fight should be Sarah K’s…

    I’ve got Barnett, but Cormier will do well in the UFC when it’s all done.

    I’m assuming that Daley vs Misaki will be a welterweight fight but has Misaki ever made 170 pounds?

    @BobbyK – If Ronda can make weight (big if here cause she was big at 145) I think she’s going to be in for a rough night. Meisha is very good at ‘run and gun’ and if she can keep gloves in Ronda’s face she can prevent the TD. Also I’m not sure if Ronda will be allowed to wear the ‘special tights’ which will take away an advantage she’s used in earlier fights (not saying she’s cheating just stating she has used the tights for grip).

    A big cut followed by a fight with someone hitting you with intent is not a great way to be welcomed to 135. That said her option prior to Cyborg’s failed test was being locked in the cage with Cris and I can’t imagine that was a happy thought for her.
