    I’m assuming Barnett is the favorite for this fight, but it could be interesting if Cormier is able to keep it standing. If I were Barnett, I’d be working on keeping guys at the end of my jab. On the other hand, if Barnett can get Cormier on his back, thats the end of the fight, but as far as I know, no one has been able to do that yet.
