The heavyweight veteran will most definitely be regarded as one of the top performers on the card. Collier had him looking finished in the first round with his sleek striking and made attempts to finish him off with a ground and pound, a rear naked choke before the time ran out.

Barnett (23-8) was totally brutalised by Collier (13-8) with injuries to the eye and Jaw. They were so evident that the veteran had to be examined by the ringside physician before the beginning of the second round. The ring side physician deemed him fit to continue.

Barnett gave all he had in the second round, took the centre firing hay-markers from the opening bell and immediately the fight got to the canvas, he rained heavy punches on Collier making him turn round on the mount. That was the beginning of the end, as Barnett kept on raining punches on Collier till the fight was halted by the referee Mark Smith at exactly 2:24 of the second round.

The win leaves Barnett with a 2-2 record in his last four outings, bouncing back from his unanimous decision loss to Martin Buday. The loss leaves Collier with a 2-4 record in the UFC.
