I for one do think Barry takes this, i also like that he wants to face the best strikers exclusively, as seeing him get GnP'd isnt that fun, but it's in his future.

I dont like him insulting Kimbo... i just dont see the need, Kimbo will ultimately sink or swim on his own in the UFC, a few losses, even with the poplarity, will relagate him to undercards and FN cards or another vocation, either way, i dont see the reason to hate, Kimbo will fight whoever the UFC puts in front of him, likely against huge odds and get KO'd.

Im glad he wants to work his way up to Kongo, that's the match i wanna see.

Fedors management is ensuring he wont lose, and his fans are nuthugging every min of it.

Yeah no doubt he would like to fight Stuve, he would win that fight easily I think. Even considering his sub par ground game, Barry would murder Struve on their feet and I don't think Stuve could get it to the ground. Struve is borderline freak show, he isn't a total can, but he is slow and clumsy, and as big as he is, I really don't think he is very strong. I'd expect Barry to win most of the time.

Struve needs to muscle up some. He is like Corey Hill of HW right now with insane jitsu, but elite striker like Barry will wreck him until he can get some power behind his kicks and punches.
Barry has pretty average ground game though so I could see Struve pulling guard and subbing him with another slick triangle, but personally I would like to see Struve fight someone who focuses more on ground game. Al Turk vs. Struve could be fun fight for example, same for Struve vs. Rolles Gracie Jr. (who is fighting al Turk at 109) depending which of the 2 wins the fight.
Basically Struve = a ton of potential, but as he is so young he has plenty of time to improve his physique by adding another 15-20 pounds into his very weirdly built body. 5 years would be pretty realistic timeline for that to happen.

This will be a great fight. Pat would be able to power his way in land some devastating leg/body shots before he TKOs Struve. Classic Tyson type of fight where he'll have to rely on excellent defense, footwork, and be ready to absorb hits to be able to get on the inside then POW! My vote was for Hardonk, but he was pretty impressive. He was able to find his range in the second round with those jabs and crosses. Really wonder how the fight would go down against Cheick. Wonder if they'll put Mirko in there.
