Pat Barry: Weight cut to 205 is pointless [VIDEO]
 
Here's a video of Pat Barry explaining why he doesn't plan on going to 205. (He starts talking about it around 8:15)



So everyone hoping Pat Barry makes the drop to 205, you can eliminate that from your wishlist...

Fair enough. I think there are too many Wrestlers at 205 for him anyway.

Yeah, I think a lot of people over look the strengths of each division. There are a lot of accomplished wrestlers are 205 that would ruin Barry's day.

Plus he would lose some of his biggest weapon... his power. I think Pat is a very realistic fighter. He's not claiming to be the best or mapping his way to a title shot. He seems to just be going out there to earn a check and do his job.

He is just pure awesome. Doesn't forget what he really does for a living and just enjoys life. World needs more folks like him.

Pat to go on a 3 fight win streak, welcome Bones to HW and turn those lights out in Round 1.

Dear Zuffa,
Don't every cut Pat Barry... he is simply the most likeable guy EVER under your employment!

I think he is misunderstanding what people are trying to say. It's not that cutting to 205 makes him a better fighter. Cutting down to 205 evens the playing field so that he"s not at such a size and weight disadvantage in the weight-class in which he's fighting in. With the skills that he possesses, I think he could be a force at 205 lbs. Just my opinion though...

Crocop weighs less than him and got him down and subbed him. He is right it is a skill issue and having to cut a bunch of weight for every fight would take away from his development as a fighter.
