"There is no secret to my game. You don't have to worry about my white belt in jiu-jitsu, you don't have to worry about my level one wrestling that's coming along; I'm going to come in the ring and I'm going to throw heat at anybody who stands across from me. There is no secret to that. Punches and kicks, knees and elbows are going to be coming from every direction, every angle, every bit of intensity. This is like a big brother vs. little brother fight. If I could grow a goatee and shave my head, we would look just alike. He's just a lot taller than I am."
-- Stop me if you've heard this one before. Leather slinging heavyweight Pat Barry will take on Strikeforce import Lavar Johnson at the UFC on FOX 3: "Diaz vs. Miller" event on May 5, 2012, at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. And -- surprise! -- Barry is planning on throwing heat at Johnson, with punches and kicks, knees and elbows, really anything that has to do with striking an opponent instead of grappling with him. Surely this is music to the ears of UFC executives who put the fight together for the third network television broadcast hoping for a slugfest that will likely result in a knockout. Or at the very least, a three round brawl that won't incite boos from the live crowd. There's no way this one will disappoint, right? Right?
