I called this fight right after Del Rosario lost to Stipe. Barry is in some serious trouble. Del Rosario is going to give him HELL no matter where the fight goes. Not a huge fan of either guy but this should be an excellent fight until someone goes down

WAR KNOCKOUT

This card is pretty good for a TUF finale. If this stays standing I predict a war

I wonder what they're going to do with the rest of the contestants, usually they just fill them in the prelims but this card already has like 10 fights. It'll be interesting to see.

If Barry had a mean streak, he could capitalise. He treats fights as sparring sessions half the time

i am hoping to see del rosario win this one. im not a pat barry fan. he's been called a great kickboxer with devastating kicks and punches but everytime i watch him fight i find myself wanting him to showcase those skills but has failed to impress me. he has a few good KO's but other than that i dont think he's anything special

Barry's the better striker here, if Shane is smart he will shoot right away.

Right now I got Barry since I think Shane will stand with him and get blasted.

I see SDR getting a takedown after getting clipped and subbing Barry with ease. I almost always take the better wrestler if the show a chin and decent hands.

if he wasn't so reckless, he would have wins over Kongo and Struve...and probably Johnson too.
