If you weren't 100 percent certain that heavyweight sluggers Pat Barry and Lavar Johnson were going to stand in the pocket and duke it out on the feet, they each provided verbal confirmation on Tuesday.

Both heavyweights said their UFC on FOX 3 matchup is going to provide guaranteed fireworks.

"Lavar and I are both allergic to jiu-jitsu," Barry said. "That's a fact. We're also allergic to rounds two and three. Will we see a lot of beginner-level wrestling and grappling on [May 5]? Most likely not."

I like Big Johnson's chances in this one, a lot. This fight is going to nasty though, no matter who is sleeping in the end

Edit: Actually, if Barry pulls an Anthony Johnson on Lavar and smokes him on the ground after this slugfest hype, I think that would be funny enough to be equally entertaining as an actual slug fest.

yeah, Pat better be rockin those leg kicks or he's getting KTFO.
Lavar isnt the most skilled, but I havent seen anyone throw bombs like he did against Joey B. Not even Carwin, they were hard , fast, and clean.


But I see Barry making ground beef of those thighs.

the thing that worries me about Berry is his short little T-Rex arms. He has to get on the inside to land solid punches. everytime he gets that close with solid strikers it makes me nervous

This is true, but once he lands 2 or 3 leg kicks, Lavar wont be looking to counter, he'll be looking to block or grab that kick and Pat shouldnt have to worry AT THAT POINT.
