I know its a ways away, but Im not quite sure what to make of this fight. I honestly feel that Cro Cop might be coming to the end of his career, unfortunately. Im a fan of Cro Cops and I hope he can prove otherwise. His recent performances just cannot amount to when he was in Pride, although I thought his last performance was fun to watch, seeing him bully Perosh.

I would not be surprised at all if CC went for the takedown against Barry. Lets be real Barry is currently one of the most powerful strikers in the division, and CC might want to take him out of his best element.

Thoughts??

I personally think CroCop wins this fight by a finish.

I don't know what to make of this fight either. Cro Cop is coming to the end of his career but I can't see him taking the fight to the ground. I think he stands and bangs with Barry. I think it will be a very entertaining fight but still don't know who takes it.

I have no idea who will win this fight because i don't see CC taking it to the ground making it a very entertaining (and risky) slugfest.

but for the sake of it WAR BARRY!!!

As much as id love to say cro cop by KO/TKO, Im just not sure on this one. Barrys a great K-1 caliber striker. On paper youd this this would be crazy striker fest. But with cro cop you just dont know. As always im hoping for a glimpse of his former self to put barry away. I got cro cop by TKO, but again its gonna be interesting and wont surprise me at all if Barry wins.

Barry by KO. Barry is an awesome guy we ran into him in columbus at the wec event and is one of the nicest guys ive ever meet. He took the time to give autographs and tell stories. He told us that when he moved into his house he wrote 5 fighters name on the wall he never wanted to fight and cro cop was number 4.

After getting off the phone with dana asking if he would fight cro cop he said to him self o crap what did I get my self into, and said if cro cop knocked him out with his left leg kick that he would go to the mat with his thumbs up and smiling haha great guy. But I see him out striking cro cop and getting a late 2nd round tko

Some back of his own

This sounds exciting, but it's really just a sideshow to either build Cro Cop for a couple more ppv's or hype Barry. Cro Cop is flat and open for that same head kick Gonzaga put on him and I've seen Barry throw a decent head kick before. I still don't know what to expect from Barry, I would have rather seen him fight Yvel, but hey, Barry is short enough that Cro Cop might get comfortable with that head kick. Cro Cop just doesn't have the footwork to win in a cage, so I'll take Barry.

In my opinion, Cro Cop is one of the top three greatest strikes in the history of MMA and there is a strong chance that id even put him at the top spot of that list. Course CroCop today and CroCop in Pride are not the same person. but what has Pat Barry really done? i know he's up and coming,but who has barry really fought? Even at this stage of his career id say that CroCop is much more dangerous then Hardonk and Evensen, who well, lets just say arent exactly main eventing ppvs. Barry has shown that he can be submitted (Tim Hague), but i doubt CroCop is going to try to take it to the ground, even if he did i doubt much would really be acheived other then maybe some ground and pound...anyway im just ranting. point is that these guys are going to stand up and knock the **** out of each other until one of em goes down. CroCop lasted until the third round with Dos Santos and he really took some shots in that fight. i dont think Pat Barry hits harder then Dos Santos, so i say CroCop survives Barry, and Ko's him late in the first round. anyway guys im tired as hell, hope this makes a little bit of sense.

I agree that Barry hasn't fought anybody, even as a kickboxer he hasn't beat anybody that I'm aware of, that is why I don't know what to expect from him, but he does have brutal leg kicks and I think he should be able to defeat Cro Cop as long as he gets off first and keeps Cro Cop from letting his hands go, that was what set his head kick up, in his Pride and K-1 days. To counter myself, Barry let the excitement get to him when he fought Hague, Cro Cop is going to give him some anxiety.
