UFC heavyweight Pat Barry broke his hand and foot in a co-main event bout with Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic this past Saturday at UFC 115 and will wear a hand cast and foot "boot" – or therapeutic brace – for five weeks.

Pat needs to work on his ground game. I don't see him beating the upper echelon of HW's. A good next fight for him might be against Duffee. They are both coming off losses in which the were initially winning the fight. Of course Duffee's was a lot more lopsided than Barrys.

He needs to learn to finish the damn fight! He had the fight in the 1rst. I'm just mad 'cause I picked him.

IMHO..he needs to drop weight..dude's 5'11" and carries around 240 or more of muscle mass..i haven't heard of anyone in any combat sport that walks around like that and still hangs with the elite or top fighters..i haven't seen anyone in boxing or k-1 to do it..and i doubt i'll see someone in mma doin it..he needs to go down to LHW..and kill it like Wandy did..after watchin Tim Hague and Cro Cop bully him..he really needs to drop weight..before he learns the hard way..or worst, gets his walkin paper...

Yeah, I guess I'd never paid attention before but when I found out he was 5'11 I was like WHOA. Not gonna happen at HW.

I don't think his height is a problem. He is body frame is pretty think with little body fat I don't think he could make 205lb. Remember Jeff Monson is only 5'9" and got a title shot. Barry needs to work on his ground game and take down D. Feed him Duffee next.

you're right, dude. I just think that 5'11 is iffy on the HW side. You have to remember that most of these guys are like 6'3"-6'5". He can work on his TD defense for the next ten years, I still don't think he'll ever hold the strap because of his size.

True, there's a myriad of reasons why he won't be champ but I do think that his size will be a factor in the majority of fights he will get.

Jeff Monson beat Big Country. I don't see Barry beating Nelson because of his ground game. Monson has as Joe Rogan would say 'World Class' ground game. He problem is not size it's skill.

People also forget that Fedor is only an inch taller than Barry. Nobody say Fedor should drop to 205lb even though I think he could probably make that weight. Also, Carwin and Mir are both only 2 inches taller than Barry. Height is not his issue. I don't think he has the killer instinct. "Mom I'm coming home..." Still a very likable person.

Mir is actually 4 inches taller than Barry. Mir is 6ft3....Barry is 5ft11.
