If you look at Pat Barry's win/loss record under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner, you will undoubtedly feel unimpressed. That's because losing as many fights as your winning has never blown anyone's doors off and for good reason. He's a wildly inconsistent fighter with some serious deficiencies in his game.
But good god is he exciting to watch when he gets to blazing those guns.
Shawn Jordan is in a similar position. His record is better, yes, but he's not here to work his way to a heavyweight title shot, even if that's his ultimate goal. No, he's here to provide Barry with an opponent who will stand and deliver what could very well end up being the "Fight of the Night" when the two throw down at tonight's (Sat., June 15, 2013) UFC 161: "Evans vs. Henderson" in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
We can only hope.
