Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Kickboxing Fans Rejoice: Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo In the Works for UFC on Versus 4 on June 26

(Barry after Cheick knees him in the balls.)

If you like a good old fashioned slobber-knocker, you’ll get one on June 26.

According to MMAJunkie, leg-kick artist Pat Barry will take on Cage Potato fan Cheick Kongo that night at the UFC on Versus 4 event whose location has yet to be determined.

Barry, who is coming off of a close decision win over Joey Beltran at UFC Fight for the Troops 2 in January after failing to pull the trigger or simply coast another 30 seconds to a probable victory against Mirko”Cro Cop” Filipovic at UFC 115 has been criticized by fans and pundits alike for not performing up to his potential. The 6-2 Duke Roufus-trained fighter will look to erase the questions about his resolve by putting an exclamation point on his record and a period on Kongo’s UFC career with a definitive win over the 15-6-2 Paris-born fighter.

1-2-1 in his last four outings, Kongo needs a win if he wants to remain employed by Zuffa, especially since the likelihood of getting picked up by Strikeforce is slim-to-none considering the purchase of the organization this weekend.

It’s a tough fight to pick considering both fighters have faced and beaten (or should have beaten) common opponents including Cro Cop, Antoni Hardonk, Dan Evensen.

One thing’s for sure:At least one guy is getting kicked in the legs and/or head.

I have a shity feeling that Kongo is gunna play it safe and show off his new (boring) wrestling skills. I mean if he was afraid to strike with Paul Buentello he ain't gunna test his luck with Barry. The last two guys he actually tried to stand and trade with were Evenson and fucking Assuerio Silva.

its not illegal to put vaseline on your trunks is it? Berry might want to take that into consideration to keep Cheick from grabbing them shits.

Why are kickboxing fans rejoicing?

Kongo only grapples or kneeballs kickboxers.

June 26th will be a sad day for testicles every where, as I'm sure we'll all cringe with every inside leg kick and inside knee up against the cage. (I'm sure Pat "Soon to have no" Barry(ies) will win. (Un. Decis.)

Pat's poor berries.

FUUUUUUUUCK! No! Who the hell signed this shit? I wonder if Joe Sons balls want to swap houses for a few days.

I think anyone who fights Kongo should be required to wear a spiked steel cup. It would operate like a normal cup, but if Kongo tries to knee/kick it, he loses his UFC contract.

as much as HD gets crap for not wanting to get hit, Kongo is far worse. If he gets hit a couple times by Barry's kicks he's going to fold.

I'd love to see Kongo vs. Gaberiel Gonzaga. Battle of the nut shots.
CungwantsCookies- March 14, 2011 at 12:30 pm
ok, so as a new orleanian im a homer (no homo) for barry. i think this has all the makings of a good old fashioned two way ass whoopin. hope pat has his stainless steel reinforced cup polished up. i can hear rogan giving the excuse about how the inside leg kick to a shorter opponent leads to nut shots now...

Could have beat cro cop? nah. he threw everything he had at him, then crop cop came back, knocked him around, and choked him out.
Anhonestmoose- March 14, 2011 at 12:22 pm
Barry is a short HW, Kongo's going to have to pull some crazy shit to get his knees that low. Frankly I'll be interested to see how he does it, since we all know Kongo can't win without at least a minimum two nut shots.

Barry's balls are gonna give Kongo's knees all they can take!

I think Pat needs to get a groin kick in first if he wants a chance to win this fight.

I'm kind of tired of Pats funnyman, happy fighter antics. I hope Kongo knocks his ass out.

I vote for Kongo. He has more tools and has fought higher level competition.
