Mir Warned Not To Pull Guard Against Barnett

“This is not a case of who’s better and who’s worse, it’s a case of who’s on the up slope and who’s on the down slope and who’s in better shape. Frank’s on the way down and Josh is coming in, so he’s going to be on his way up. There’s a lot of pressure on Frank because he has to win. Being a great commentator as he is, being a big part of the UFC as he has been, a good poster child, win or lose he’ll still remain in the UFC because he’s still a great contender and a force to be reckoned with. He’s got a good ground game. Josh loves to rip people’s legs off and Frank prides himself on leg locks, also. This will be exciting. But all I can say, is be careful pulling guard.”

In a recent interview with FightHub.TV, famed grappling coach, Erik Paulson discusses the upcoming heavyweight showdown years in the making, between two-former UFC heavyweight champions, Josh Barnett and Frank Mir.

The two grappling heavies are set to throw down at UFC 164 next month in Milwaukee.
