"For when you die, it will be without honor."
In hilarious UFC 164 soundbyte news, Josh Barnett discusses Frank Mir's ground game: "I can think of a lot of drunken nights that have been bigger mistakes than grappling Frank Mir."

A couple other random thoughts on the already posted UFC 164 Countdown:
Some lies by omission:
That being said, the card has some interesting match-ups. Jokes aside, I'm very interested to see Pettis rematch Ben Henderson, the last man to beat Bendo before he won the belt. Pettis choked against Guida but I think he simply overlooked the one-dimensional fighter.
Mir vs Barnett will be interesting if Barnett doesn't land some heavy punches from top position (Mir's recent crash landing zone against guys like Carwin and Lesnar).
Mendes will perhaps finish Guida b/c I do respect Mendes' punching power against guys not named Aldo who pick him apart.
Do I care about Brandon Vera or Rothwell? Not really.
Poirer vs Koch will be an exciting fight no matter who wins.
Tibau vs Varner will go to a decision, probably split.
The rest of the fights I don't care much if anything about either.
