indianrob - I think Barnett gets boxed up on route to being k.o.

unfortunately yes. I see him shooting for takedowns to no avail and being forced to stand with JDS and finally eating a lighting uppercut and stumbling around like a dumpy white oaf till he finally crumbles. I don't like it but can't see it going any other way.

savage043 - Jds vs mir repeat Phone Post
You crazy!?

Not a chance that Barnett vs JDS looks like JDS vs Mir.

They might have similar styles but they are COMPLETELY different fighters.

Barnett vs JDS would be very, very competitive. If Barnett could get Junior down then he would be in a lot of trouble. Phone Post

People have said this about JDS but I bet Junior is a beast on the ground. JDS is super strong and agile.

can someone post JDS video on the ground?

You know... being "elite".......

If Barnett can get him down, he would be a big threat.

I'm just not too confident that Josh can take JDS down. Phone Post

I don't see a good pathway to a Barnett win. Could Barnett outstrike JDS? Possible but improbable. Could Barnett take him down? He has a better chance with that, but on the other hand Barnett's not a great takedown guy. Could he keep JDS down if he got him to the ground? Unlikely.

What's more likely is that JDS uses his speed, boxing, and foot work to keep Barnett at range and tag him over and over again until JDS draws blood and pounces in for the kill. Phone Post

First fight with Joaquim Ferreira

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4y_bvhalTc

Second fight (where he gets armbarred)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sglrE5UYXXc

As you can see in the video, he easily sweeps Ferreira and gets on top. Gets complacent, and gives up an arm. Ferreira hangs on to it tight as JDS rolls and tries to escape. This was after he had beat the shit out of him in their first match and Ferreira tapped out due to exhaustion.

Ferreira is the type of guy who is dangerous for the first two minutes and then that is pretty much it. JDS made a rookie mistake in his 6th fight. One he has not made since.

Here's the fight with Joaquim and Glover.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVMjOcyik5E

Here's Joaquim vs. Damian Grabowski (insane grappling match)

Love to see one or two UFC fights with Barnett in it before matching with JDS. But an absolute hell yes to seeing Barnett and Cormier in the heavyweight mix in the UFC.

I don't understand? What does that have to do with anything?

I think Barnett would give JDS a decent fight. I'm not sure if he would be able to get Junior to the ground, but it's not out of the question obviously.

I doubt JDS would be shooting for take downs on Josh.

I think Barnett makes it ugly and JDS wouldn't like it.

IF it does happen I hope it's 5 rounds.

I'd say JDS/OVereem are the worst 2 matchups out there for Barnett though. Gets outstruck by both and doesnt take either down

Barnett is a bad matchup for most guys. So is JDS.

Barnett wins the battle of attrition. He's durable, and JDS fades easily.

Barnett is a bad match up for reem. Barnett ties him up, takes him down does whatever he wants.

Cain is the match up i'm not so sure about... Too similar.

I dont see it for Barnett at this point anymore. He's competitive with anyone in the world but I think he falls short of the current elite Heavys. Which to me is Cain/Cormier/Overeem/JDS

Would love to see him against Mir/WErdum and the Nog rubber mtach. With everyone else but JDS scheduled, JDS/Barnett does make sense and would love to see it
