Round 1:
Both fighters open orthodox. Right away Barnett is pressuring and both fighters are landing as they clinch. Barnett still pressuring forward with Mir's back against the fence. Barnett is landing hard uppercuts in the clinch. Barnett is starting to land hard and Mir is reacting to Barnett's clinch game. A hard knee lands for Barnett and Mir crumbles to the mat face first. Barnett goes hip to hip and starts to unload before the referee stops the fight. Mir protests the stoppage, but it's too little, too late.
