UFC Heavyweights Frank Mir and Josh Barnett are set to square off this Saturday night at UFC 164, and the talk of the two fighting has been going on for almost a decade. The bout became an impossibility when Barnett tested positive for PEDs and was stripped of his title and cut from the UFC. Barnett is now back with the organization making the fight a reality, and in their pre fight interview the pair talk about the fight thats been ten years in the making.
UFC 164: Henderson Vs Pettis II takes place August 31 at the HMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee. Defending lightweight champion Benson Henderson looks to defend his belt for the fourth time when he takes on Anthony Pettis in a rematch of the final WEC fight in history. In the first fight, Pettis defeated Henderson in a five round back and forth bout by unanimous decision, and the result left Pettis as the final WEC Lightweight Champion.
