Lol @ 86% of Sherdog picking Barnett

Barnett is not on the same level as Browne. More experience, yes, but he's never fought this kind of athlete before. I have honestly never seen such a lopsided opinion in favor of the guy I knew was going to lose. I'm truly baffled at how many people are underestimating Hapa.

Browne by KO, R2

Barnett not on the same level as Travis Browne? Do you know who Barnett is?

That doesn't mean that 86% of Sherdog doesn't give Browne a chance, they just think Josh is going to win. I'm picking Barnett to win but I think Browne can pull it off.

Think you got it backwards sir, even if barnett is on the tail end of his career.

Browne is the single most unlikable fighter in the sport. Beyond that, he hasn't really exhibited standout skills in area to be honest. He's just average. Combined with being extremely arrogant, he becomes the target of much hatred.

Still, this is HW and anything can happen with one punch. At the very least, he showed great toughness against Reem. Still looked absolutely terrible though.

Brown's standup is sloppy and his ground game is flawed.

Barnett will take him down, exhaust him, and then go for the finish.

As for the 86% percentage, we've been wrong before (Fedor/Werdum)(GSP/Serra1) by that margin. But if the popular opinion is so lopsided against your favor, maybe there's something you're missing.

So what are you going to say if Browne loses? That he won? Since you know who is going to win...
