Strickland is one of the most promising young prospects in the MW division, if not the most promising. He's fast, accurate, well-rounded, undefeated and finished 11 of 14 fights. Barnatt is a TUF alum who has looked really good in his last two fights. He destroyed Andrew Craig in a fight where he was a heavy underdog, then finished Mats Nilsson with ease in a fight where he barely got touched. Strickland has more potential, but Barnatt has lots of power, knows how to use his reach and can test Strickland's chin. This should be a fun fight.
