When they stuffed the Pat Barry vs Dan Evensen fight into the first gap in the PPV, I was hoping that it was going to deliver an impressive finish. And while I was let down in that regard, it was interesting to see Pat Barry’s debut. He was solid but not extrordinary … he basically kicked the shit out of Evensen’s leg until Evensen quit.
Those looking at Barry to be the next big thing at heavyweight: you’re backing the wrong horse. Even with an obviously thin ground game, Evensen still managed to drag Barry down and tie him up in the guard. If Barry ended up in the cage with anyone who’s beyond white belt skills, he’s gonna get wasted.
