Pat Barry: Lavar and I are allergic to BJJ

by Tom Ngo | source:

“Lavar and I are both allergic to jiu-jitsu,” Barry stated during at Tuesday’s press conference. “That’s a fact. We’re also allergic to rounds two and three. Will we see a lot of beginner-level wrestling and grappling on the 5th? Most likely not.”

Lavar Johnson has beyond heavy hands. The dude’s fists are the size of my head. I think we’re going to do our damndest to punch each other a lot.”

Of Barry’s seven professional mixed martial arts victories, six have come via some form of knockout. Fourteen of Johnson’s 16 wins have ended in the same fashion.

Johnson, who previously put Joey Beltran to sleep with a vicious barrage of uppercuts, feesl the same way too.

“Pat’s a tough fighter. I feel I match up very well with him,” Johnson said. “He’s not looking to go to the ground. I’m not either. I’m trying to come up and try and smash him and make it happen.”

He and Lavar had a brutal exchange aginst the fence where Lavar (aka Lamar) hit him flush twice.  After that, Pat suddenly wanted it on the ground. ;-)

Kind of funny that Barry spent half the round trying for a sub.Personally I thought if he had been dropping elbows instead of trying to be a grappler he may have had a different outcome.

No disrepect to Lavar, he's a bad dude. But as soon as he fights a wrestler with solid grappling skills he's done.  Barry took him down and almost subbed him.

I actually like Barry in this fight. He's had the lesser reach for most of his fights. Without the threat of the TD, and if Lavar works outside, you're going to see a lot of kicks from Barry. Will be fun to watch either way.
