Head 2 Head: Mir vs. Barnett

BY foxsports • September 29, 2013

After protracted contract negotiations, Josh Barnett is back in the UFC fold, more than 11 years after he packed up, left and went on a mercenary world tour. Since then he fought in Pancrase, PRIDE and Strikeforce, among others, but at age 35, the clock is ticking on his hope of regaining the UFC championship. Standing in his way is Mir, who fought for the belt as recently as 2012, and who himself is attempting to show he still has what it takes to be considered a contender.
