Barry via what he wants (as long as he doesn't put caution to the wind via Kongo fight).

Barry is technical and should really utilize his powerful kicks and punching combos.

Let's hope this ends in brutal KO fashion. Barry needs a pick me up

Wouldn't be surprised to see either guy get knocked out in this fight. I expect this fight to be short and action packed with someone getting kfto, my money is on Barry to win.

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.

Barry should take this, hopefully! Wouldn't put it past him to get knocked out though.

Not all fighters have and can be championship material to be exciting. You can't honestly say you don't like his fights?

The UFC is obviously desperate to get Barry a win here, and even this I'm not sure he wins if Johnson gets it to the ground.

Barry seems like a nice dude, but he will never beat any well rounded fighter. He will just do a steady cycle of 1-2 wins, followed by a loss as soon as he faces a decent fighter, get fed a couple cans, lose to real fighter. Rinse, repeat for as long as the UFC is willing to do it.
