Barry looked huge as fuck
Beltran, although not a good fighter, really showed quite a bit of heart taking some really hard punishment to his legs that arguably would've made more skilled fighters in the division crumple.
Beltran, although he ultimately lost, did a pretty good job of implementing his gameplan by throwing barry off with ineffective flurries and then pinning him against the cage.
Barry did like, nothing. He was really hesistant the whole fight, like he was either very afraid of getting taken down, or his head just wasn't in the fight.
Barry's extra muscle mass didn't seem to do much for his cardio.
Fight was pretty boring.
I really like Pat Barry, and I do think like many others think he is a potential prospect, but this was really a fight that he should have dominated, and had he been more aggressive, he almost definitely would have. He had this massive speed advantage, probably the fastest hands in the HW division, and yet he doesn't utilize it.
Barry actually really surprises me. For a guy who came from a strong Sanshou background, you'd think he'd actually be a bit more adept at sweeps and throws, and have a stronger defense against grappling from the standup.
