Pat Barry -What am I missing?

Before I start this is NOT an anti Pat Barry thread.

however a lot of MMA fans say this guy is a great fighter, a great striker.
his MMA and K1 records (winn/loss) say different.

So why all this love for PB. I have only seen him fight in the UFC and to be honest his hype is big but his performances have been pretty average.

Please convince me...

He just looks like a great guy to hang out with and has a great perspective on life and MMA. Realistically he's a small Heavyweight striker that won't be relevant in a division of elite wrestlers.

Katy Perry looks like a good person to hang out with but that doesn't make her a great fighter!

Strip her down to a pair of shorts and put her in a cage. I'll pay?

^^^ me too.

He's a fanboy living his dream. He got to trade kicks with Cro-cop and didn't give a damn what anybody thought when he showed his appreciation for that moment.

I don't think a lot of people do think he is a great fighter. I think most MMA fans are well aware he is of average ability as far as UFC fighters go. He is more popular than his ability would warrant because he seems like a genuinely nice/fun guy.

Dude, who exactly has called Barry a great fighter? I dont think I recall a single post along those lines. Are you not reading the responses so far? PERSONALITY. Thats where its at.

Shit like this:

He is very honest about his feelings regarding fighting. He appears to be a genuine and likable guy. He has an exciting fighting style with bone-crushing kicks and punches. And he is a world class striker, but he fights in a division where everyone is bigger than he is. It would be great if he could make 205.

Most people here knew who he was before he ever fought in the UFC.
