Struve submits Barry on UFC Live 6 main card

source: mmamania.com
 

If "HD" wanted to raze the "Skyscraper" he would have to do so while giving up an entire foot of height, not to mention deal with the extensive reach advantage of his opponent.

In fact, seeing the two of them squared off in the cage was downright comical. But was it equally as explosive?

No. Not by a long shot. But it did have an incredible finish with Struve submitting Barry via triangle choke in the second round ... but not before he was picked up and slammed.

When two wrestlers meet inside the Octagon you can usually count on 15-minutes of lull or a stand up showdown with plenty of action.

In this one, we got a bit of both.

Johnson opened with his usual burst of speed and athleticism looking to land early and often with a head kick that he knew would be available to him.

Sure enough, after a brief stint battling on the floor, "Rumble" executed a swift kick to "The Spaniard's" skull that sent him flying back. Referee Mario Yamasaki quickly stepped in to stop the fight but was it warranted?

Wiman was given the chance to prove his win was no fluke while Danzig got his shot at revenge. You didn't tap last time and you're the better man? Prove it.

Rematches rarely live up to their billing but this one was nothing short of spectacular. And, naturally, there's an argument to be made that it ended in a controversial decision.

Either way, Wiman leaves the nation's capital with another victory over Danzig, this one a hard fought unanimous decision.

Spiking, I believe, is top of the head. Compressing the spine, like a pile-driver.I doubt Barry is cut. Not with a career highlight reel slam like that. Barely anybody can pull them off at this level of the competition, they're too easy to defend. Rampage hasn't done one since Pride. IMO that slam won Barry at least one more chance.

I have to watch it again but that slam looked like some serious spiking to me. It doesn't matter because Struve is ok and if anything just made the triangle easier to finish but I thought that was illegal? That was back of the head straight to the canvas. I'll have to watch it again I guess. Is this happy trails for Barry? I hope not.
