barnett_576Sometimes things make such perfect sense that there’s no need to argue or modify it. Just yesterday we discussed a possible matchup of heavyweight grapplers Josh Barnett and Frank Mir. And it wasn’t the first time we talked about that pairing. Well, guess what? The UFC thankfully felt it made perfect sense too. So they booked it.

Barnett vs. Mir will be part of the August 31st Milwaukee event—UFC 164. Other fights already set for that show are Clay Guida vs. Chad Mendes, Dustin Poirier vs. Erik Koch and Brandon Vera vs. Ben Rothwell. Diego Sanchez has also been linked to that show, but no opponent has been named yet.

Barnett, the Strikeforce Grand Prix runner up, is coming off a win against Nandor Guelmino in January. Former champ Mir has suffered two straight losses. In fairness, if he would have fought a guy named Nandor Guelmino, he’d be on a winning streak too. All kidding aside, this is a great fight in my opinion.
