Strikeforce results: Josh Barnett makes quick work of Nandor Guelmino

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

What everyone thought was going to happen, well, happened. Former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett positively ran through Nandor Guelmino on Saturday at Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine in Oklahoma City, Ok.

From the moment the bell sounded, Barnett - who had been battling the flu - got right to work. He charged across the cage, clinched with Guelmino and took him right to the mat. To Guelmino's credit, he was able to establish guard. Barnett stood up and sat back for an ankle lock, but Guelmino was able to fight out of it.

That didn't last long.

Another trip takedown from Barnett not only planted Guelmino on the mat, but placed Barnett directly in mount. From there he almost automatically locked up the head and arm triangle.

The tape came 2:11 of round 1.

Barnett moves to 32-6 in professional MMA and 3-1 in Strikeforce.
