“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.”

Great fight. I got the impression from Burton's last fight he throws straight punches and makes use of range, and without looking it up, he probably outranges Barry, so I expect Burton to win by (T)KO.

I really like Lavar Johnson, but he has a bad habit of leaving his chin up in the air when he punches. He hits so hard that most guys are more worried about covering up or getting out of the way then trying to counter, but I don't think that's the case with Pat.

It will be fun but I think Pat lands a big counter shot at some point in the first round and finishes after that.

 Look for Lavar to start to gas out before Pat & lose by TKO.

Interesting, considering 4 out of Lavar's 5 losses were via submission. Phone Post

It`s no secret that Lavar`s weakness is the ground game.His loss against Olson was pretty much a freak accident.You can say that Lavar was basically discovered by winning two Toughman competitions in Lemoore.

I'd also like to add that people shouldn't take his loss to Doug Marshall too seriously
either. He basically couldn't come out for the second because Marshall had done an
impressive job of nailing him in the balls.

 Good to see other forum members who know what time it is.

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.

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.

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.

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. ;-)
