    Im not sure what his deal is if he cant train properly or what after that car accident just not the same fighter at all. His cardio is gone the guy gassed half way thru the first trying to take Pat Barry down.

    You hope he can turn it around but its just not looking good it just looks like hes in there just to collect a check meanwhile he fighting beast

    um no. Barry lit his ass up. thats all there is to it. he had a great fight w/ Miocic and that's 2 losses to 2 worthy opponents. so no, he shouldn't retire.

    You're crazy. SDR was gassed after a minute into the first round, which he spent leaning on Barry.

    That combo from Barry wold have put anyone out, that's all there is to it.

    I don't think he should retire.

    Del Rosario had his chance in that fight, I'm not sure why he never went for the body lock when he was trying for submissions.

    Good for Barry though, his post fight interview made my day

    Um, he made Lavar Johnson his bitch. The same Lavar Johnson who destroyed Pat Barry lol.

    SDR wasn't gassed, he won the first round against Miocic and Got hit hard by Barry after dominating the first round again. It happens. Still an incredible fighter.

    No. He will never be elite imo, but he could hang around the lower-middle tier of the division. Make some money and put on some good fights.

    He's gassed twice in a row in well under a round in fights that weren't particularly fast paced either. He needs to figure that shit out if he plans on beating guys who can survive his initial onslaught. I think he can turn it around the way Mir did after his motorcycle accident, it's just going to take time.

    Most 240 pound men look gassed after grappling like that. He's a pretty good fighter and luckily for him he is in a super shallow division where he can hang around the middle and make some good money.

    He should fight Shawn Jordan. Did they fight in strikeforce?

    I consider Barry mid-level, despite a recent skid.

    A lot of those fight could have went the other way, including this one tonight.

    Neither will ever break top 10-15, but that doesn't mean they can't stick around for a while and build a respectable career. Leben-esque.

    This pretty much sums it up. It's a fight, anything can happen, especially when we're talking about hard hitting heavyweights.

    Seriously. There's more than 10 fighters per division. As soon as you look like you can't get close to the belt, sherdog wants you to retire.
