    Obviously the guy could have competed as a LHW if he really wanted to, but would he have done better against guys like Shogun, Machida, or rampage?

    Most would agree that his weakest aspect was his grappling. Would he have been better off fighting smaller men?

    this, dude that just ko'd him in kickboxing wasn't that big and his ground game isn't up to par

    He could put on fun fights but you're still looking at a very limited ceiling

    Something like that against most wrestlers in the division.

    Matchups against Shogun, Hendo, Maldonado, Manuwa, Rampage, Glover(if he decided to stand), etc could have been fun fights though.

    He can't grapple to save his life. And his chin is suspect.

    Would have gotten knocked the fuck out. Always was a guy to root for but he just never had the chin to compete. I always rooted for him but the outcome was pretty predictable when he fought.

    With favorable matchmaking he possibly could have gotten a small win streak going.

    Probably would have realistically not done much better

    I think about the same, maybe a little better. Loved watching him fight, his fights were always bonkers, win or lose. Kind of like a HW Wand.

    I think the weight cut would hinder his performance.

    He wouldn't have dinner much better. Pat Barry has no real ground game and after maybe his second win he wouldn't soon again.

    Bad with all the wrestlers in the division. Especially given his preference to kicking.

    I mean, he could probably starch anyone in the first minute if he lands. But you can rely on that.
