"I should be faster. I should be capable of moving more than he does. That should be the plan and honestly, I think I hit harder than he does if not harder. So that'll be good to my advantage also since I am sort of a small package. He's as tall as he is wide, like he's all around just a big guy. So, if he is capable of getting the fight to the ground, he's going to have the somewhat upperhand. But, I don't necessarily suck on the ground either. I'd like to keep it standing as much as possible. Regardless of what anybody on the planet says, people would rather see two guys punch and kick each other than they would like to see guys wrestle and submit each other."
True, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight hurter Pat Barry was submitted by Mirko Filipovic, but don't read too much into that, as "HD" does not suck on the ground. That's according to his conversation with the incomparable Heidi Fang over at MMA Fight Corner, who got the stocky-and-cocky striker to dish some dirt on his upcoming 265-pound melee opposite accomplished grappler Soa Palelei. "The Hulk" will try to send Barry to his second straight loss on the televised main card of UFC Fight Night 33 on FOX Sports 1, which kicks off tomorrow night (Dec. 6, 2013) at Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Queensland, Australia. But will the ground game be a factor, or will fans get their wish and see these two bang it out on the feet?
