Lawal obviously have heavy hands..but so does Barry,they booth are pure standup fighters.This is going to be a slugfest,the one that hits best first is the one that is going to sleep.

This can go either way! Great fight im looking forward to.

I'm definitely giving this one to Barry. Lavar has heavy hands but so does Barry. He has even harder kicks and a better technique.

I don't think anyone can beat Barry in the standup unless they completely luck out like Kongo did. Barry via TKO.

It's not about being Championship material, for years he was just a kick boxer in the sport of MMA, when all they wanna do is stand and have no ground game I don't really find that exciting.

yup barry is not a one dimensional striker... he is very well rounded.. hendo is a one dimensional striker but his entire MMA game is very well rounded...

lavar has a good chin and barry does not... i gotta take lavar and thats where my money is given the odds.

I like Lavar here too. I think Barry won't be able to close the distance without taking too much damage. I don't really see this going the distance between these two go for broke strikers.

Barry should have cut down to light heavy to start his whole mma career. I think the reason he won't be able to get that much success is due to him being in the wrong division for his weight class. He's only 5'11"

Barry doesn't strike me as the kind of dude that would be down with weight cutting.

Lavar is going to knock Barry queer.


As an aside, he's probably the hardest puncher in the division.

Harder than Carwin or Mark Hunt you say? Granted Beltran has a hell of a chin, but I think Carwin has more raw power and Hunt can do more damage due to better technique and accuracy.
