I can't help but think that DC is going to create a snoozer.....unintentionally of course. I don't thank he will have the gnp skills to take out Barnett. I don't see Barnett on top during any time and certainly don't see him subbing DC from the bottom. DC by snoozer....
I actually think this fight will play out mostly on the feet. Cormier has fallen in love with his striking and has really put the effort in to improve it. And of course, he has the tools to keep it there and take it to the ground if he's in any trouble.
Something in my head is just screaming Barnett will gas horribly in the championship rounds and Cormier will finish him with some ground and pound. It's a Heavyweight fight as well so that increases the chances of a finish, especially with this being a 25 minute fight. It feels weird to say it at this point but Cormier is a 33 year old prospect that could make waves in the UFC's Heavyweight division.
With all of that said though, Josh Barnett is a veteran of this sport and has beaten some of the best the Heavyweight division has had to offer. He's well rounded and if he gets on top of you you're basically screwed. I just personally think this is a bad style match up for him. I'd love to see both guys in the UFC when this tournament is all said and done.
