Pat Barry (5-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) is just happy he doesn't have to shower with a Glad bag over his right arm.

The 30-year-old UFC heavyweight badly broke his thumb fighting former training partner Antoni Hardonk at UFC 104 in October and has been avoiding the gym until today, when he teaches a kickboxing class at the Duke Roufus MMA Academy in Milwaukee.

I want to see Barry vs Dos Santos.
They're both coming off wins.
Although I know it makes more sense for Dos Santos to get tested by someone who'll (try) to take the fight to the ground, I just really want to see the striking battle that would be Barry vs Dos Santos.

I think that would be real short don't you....considering JDS's reach speed and power? Now McSweener ..... that makes sense.

im going to be bold and comeout and say it i think barry has better mma stand up than kongo and if it stayed standing would take a tough stand up decision.
I know kongo has better credentials but barry just has so much speed mixed with power with those little gloves i think he would beat kongo

I don't want to see Barry v. DOs Santos right now. I want to see DS v. a bigger wrestler like Cain. I'd also like to see Barry v. a striker...maybe Kongo.not a bad idea. I think Congo is beter though

I don't think Kongo is better by any means, not in skill or talent. He is way bigger, just as fast, much stronger, huge reach advantage, and just good enough to land what it is going to take to KO Barry in highlight reel fashion.

Kongo vs Barry is a good match to hype Barry and he might win it. I'm not sure he's taking MMA serious enough though, he seems a long way from contender.

i'd like to see him face kongo or yvel in montreal, both would be awesome fights, but i could see the ufc matching him up with someone with at least a decent ground game.

hopefully it's the montreal card because it's getting better by the day, can't wait to be back in 'la belle province'! might have to get a couple smaller guys in there though heh, who should goulet fight? volkmann? hazelett?
