Fighting Josh Barnett must feel like tying yourself to a cement block and jumping into water. He's not real flashy or explosive -- but he's always on you. Travis Browne has to back him off somehow. Whether it's using his footwork to create space and stay off the fence or landing something significant of his own in the clinch, he can't afford to get bottled up like he did early against Alistair Overeem. Browne's takedown defense in the UFC is a sparking 100 percent. That's great, but it also means we don't have a great idea of what his guard looks like. If he does get the space he wants, he's likely to look very good. He mixes in kicks with his punches effectively and he'll have a major hand speed advantage.
