Frank Mir vs. Josh Barnett slated for UFC 164


 Last week it was announced that Josh Barnett had finally come to terms and would be joining the ranks of the UFC's heavyweight division. In an interview last week, former champion Frank Mir said that a match up with himself and Barnett would be awesome. Apparently, somebody was listening, as the UFC announced the matchup tonight on Twitter:

#UFC164 gets a heavyweight clash of entertainers - @TheFrankMir vs @JoshLBarnett! Tix now on pre-sale … #HD110 #MKE

I'm often critical of the UFC's matchups and especially their cards (for good reason), but kudos to them for making this happen.It seems they were listening.

Is Mir the gate keeper now? Looking forward to this. Mir right now, is the best all around Mir we've ever seen.

Yeah, you see Barnett's subs coming. But his mount is deadly.
