Fedor/Barnett IMO will be a better fight then any of the Fedor/Big Nog. Dont get me wrong. I'm a huge Nog fan and know for a fact he'll be the next HW champion he first opportunity he gets. But style wise I think Fedor/Barnett puts on a better fight.
My explanation for this is simple. Big Nog was a BJJ guy. Everyone knows in BJJ nobody cares what position there in. They will submitt for anywhere which is why most of them are really calm on there back like Big Nog. So Big Nog didn't care about getting on top he was working from the guard most the fight with Fedor in it. But Barnett on the other hand is a catch wrestler and anybody who knows anything about wrestling knows position is everything so Barnett will look more towards the takedown rather then work subs from any position.
The fight would be an absolute grappling war. There striking is somewhat even. Not the greatest technique wise with pin point accuracy but they can hand with the best strikers. But grappling they will be slamming each other all over the place.
Hope that fight happens
Even if it don't happen this 1st M-1 event could go down as the best first show in a company in MMA history! Definitlely have the fighters to pull it off...
