Yeah this fight has me on the fence for sure. Cro-cop is one of my hero's, but Pat is a local boy and good friends with several of the guys I train with. I gotta go with Pat on this. This is such a huge opportunity for him to advance his career while Mirko has already been there and done that. War Barry!!!
Barry takes this one even though I love me some CroCop. Barry is a tremendouse kickboxer. We know for a fact this will stay on the feet and I just feel Barry will be way too fast and will pick CroCop apart. I hope we will see more kicks from CroCop since the fear of being taken down won't be there, but honestly, who knows. CroCop has definitely not be his old self in the UFC. A lot of this is exactly what Barry has said in the fact that everyone else has evolved. While CroCop can still be very dangerous on his feet, or I should say WITH his feet, I still feel at this point Barry is just a much better kickboxer at this time.
