    To me he looked a bit more trim which gave me the impression that he might already be adjusting his diet. If he was serious about the move, he could make it. He needs to drop down to LHW to continue to have a career in the UFC.

    I honestly think Pat's career would have had more success if he was cut a long time ago. Sure he would be fighting against lesser talent, but at least he would be able to rack up some wins and develop his skills and confidence more.

    On his Facebook page, he posted a picture after the fight smiling and making funny faces. People got after him for that, feeling he's not taking his UFC run serious enough.
    He always makes "funny" faces and dumb videos, he posts that stuff everyday.
    It is not that he does not take seriously his UFC career, probably he simply does not takes seriously himself.

    Barry needs to go to the minor leagues.

    Barry is a great gatekeeper I dont like pham but he fought well and is a solid lower level gate keeper as well.

    If Pat was going to make the cut to LHW he wold have done it a long time ago he knows he's undersized for the HW division. As much as I like Pat it's just seems like he doesn't take things serious enough though to ever amount to anything more then what he is already.

    If Pat wants to salvage his career in ANY way, he would make the cut. Or at least try and make the cut. He cannot withstand the heavy blows at heavyweight. That's a proven. Anyone and everyone has and can put his lights out. He's losing to less skilled fighters who hit hard.

    On his Facebook page, he posted a picture after the fight smiling and making funny faces. People got after him for that, feeling he's not taking his UFC run serious enough. Also a ton of people were screaming at him to go to LHW.

    Yeah, I'm not too sure about Barry in particular. Three brutal first round KO losses out of four and with Palelei, that's basically a loss against the bottom barrel of the HW division, with really Rosholt and MAYBE Mitrione being the only ones ranked lower next to guys who have yet to debut in the organization. He's getting his lights put out badly, but his one saving grace could be the lack of depth of HWs and he is really popular.

    I've been reading some crazy stats about Phan lately, about the various records he holds like for number of punches absorbed and losing the several one-sided score cards(vs. Siver and Hettes), but he's exciting and could get a reprieve based on him dropping down in weight and having yet to be stopped in these fights.

    I'd be fine with either getting cut given their records and would be equally fine with them staying on for one more chance.

    Sidenote as always, its scary to see guys like this who take a shitload of damage and its cumulative effects.
