Frank Mir VS Josh Barnett added to UFC 164

Frank Mir and Josh Barnett will square off against one another this August at UFC 164.

The two have been hinting at a possible match in the previous days, and the UFC’s official Twitter page announced the fight on Wednesday night.

Mir is looking to come off of a two-fight losing streak to Daniel Cormier and then-UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.

Barnett is returning to the UFC  Octagon for the first time in 11 years, as he left the company after being stripped of the title. He topped Nandor Guelmino to close out Strikeforce earlier this year. Barnett also came in runner up to the Strikeforce Grand Prix last summer.
