TUF 16 Finale: Pat Barry vs Shane Del Rosario

Pat Barry vs. Shane Del Rosario added to TUF 16 Finale



There will be a double-dose of heavyweights at the The Ultimate Fighter 16's Finale, as another encounter of big men has been added to the card with agreements in place for a bout pitting popular striker Pat Barry against Shane Del Rosario.

The UFC confirmed that the matchup would take place on the Dec. 15 show, which will take place at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. It will of course be headlined by a long-simmering grudge match between season 16 coaches Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson.

When they meet, both Barry and Del Rosario will be looking to avoid two-fight losing streaks.

Barry most recently competed in May, when he suffered a first-round TKO loss at the hands of slugger Lavar Johnson. Though he remains a fan favorite due to his gregarious personality and aggressive fight style, Barry (7-5) could be facing a UFC career crossroads, having lost three of his last four, all by finish.

In Del Rosario, he'll be facing a well-rounded opponent who has the bulk of his wins by knockout. The Californian made his UFC debut in May, losing in a second-round TKO to prospect Stipe Miocic. That was the first loss in his career, as he fell to 11-1.

The TUF 16 Finale is shaping up nicely, as the UFC has populated it with other intriguing matchups including a featherweight bout between Dustin Poirier and Jonathan Brookins and an encounter between streaking welterweights Mike Pyle and James Head. And of course, it will also feature the finals of the season 16 tournament finals.

I think SDR takes it to the ground and submits Barry. Hope for a standup war though!

Not sure SDR will just take him down and sub him. SDR has sub'd white belts...which is basically what Barry is. But how are Shane's TD?

Barry is pretty stocky and strong. His TDD isn't terrible. He probably has a better ground game than Lavar Johnson by now.

I guess anyone can sub Barry, but Shane isn't exactly a high level BJJ fighter. He is pretty average himself.

I pretty much agree with this, however I think if Shane can get the fight to the ground he may look to win by ground and pound rather than risking position to go for submissions.

Barry is not UFC caliber.

Here's hoping Del Rosario beats him and sends him and his tired act to Bellator.

Barry just needs to stick to kicking peoples legs out from under them. It is all he is really good at...

My guess is they're going to stand up and looking to bang until one get's a clear advantage over the other and tries to take it to the ground. Fun fight.

Good fight, but I'd say SDR is a fairly safe bet.
