Apart of me almost wants to see Barry lose a grappling battle. Mostly because some nameless guy abused the rep system after I stated a popular opinion, which was that Barry had a bad ground game. Apparently he proved me wrong when he managed to not get submitted by Morecraft, a mediocre fighter who still managed to mount Barry almost at will. I was just a hater for questioning his grappling skills. Fortunately, I'm not gonna let that change my opinion on a nice guy who is at least trying to improve on the ground. He showed some decent escapes in that fight, even if it was only against Morecraft. I'm a fan of Barry, he has good stand up skills and he seems like a decent individual. Just irritates me when someone would rather abuse a system instead of having a clean debate on a matter, which is partially what these forums are for.
Anyways, end rant, haha. That being said, I'm picking Barry to win this fight. As long as he doesn't get too aggressive, he should cleanly out strike Johnson in my opinion.
