There's a thing called respect for an opponent, and then there's admiration.

UFC heavyweight Pat Barry will have to figure out where he draws the line when he steps in the cage against one of his idols, Mirko Cro Cop, this Saturday at UFC 115.

"Like the reason why there are guys like me with the level of fighting that I have in MMA nowadays is because of him, is because of him solely," Barry said on a recent media call. "I put the blame on him. He caused the rest of us to evolve. So is it difficult to separate star-struckness like from -- it being a regular fight? ... Absolutely."

I'm having real trouble who I'm going to give my pick to....

Barry was really impressive against Hardonk, and has the speed and kickboxing skills to give any HW fits...

but every interview I read he seems a little off about this fight....

I think Cro Cop might have him beat before he enters the ring....I dunno
