Something had been missing in the two years since Pat Barry gave up his K-1 dreams and decided to become a ninja. Or a mixed martial artist.

One of the two. Maybe both.

Barry was doing everything he needed to become a well-rounded fighter, which in his case was a near-daily regimen of wrestling and jiu jitsu with his stablemates at Roufusport Academy in Milwaukee.

He toiled on the mats learning about the completely different application of leverage and balance. He learned about how to get out of bad situations and how to get back to his feet. He got tapped, a lot.

Both might be trying to keep their job so Beltran needs to go for takedowns and Barry should already know this and impliment a sprawl & brawl/kickboxing gameplan to a tee. I've been hearing rumors Barry's coming into this fight real bulked up and I think it makes sense for this fight if he dosent gas out.

Maybe Beltran is fighting for his job? I see this as a tune-up fight for Pat, coming off injured hand and foot.Barry is a great striker, maybe has the deadliest leg kicks in MMA. My geuss is he uses those kicks to keep distance and KO Beltran early in the 2nd rnd.
