Cro Cop vs. Pat Barry on tap for UFC 115

A battle between two of the heavyweight division’s most feared knockout artists is looking likely to take place at UFC 115 as Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic and Pat Barry have reportedly been extended a formal invitation to clobber one another in Canada.

The fight has been offered up to both fighters according to MMA Scraps Radio.

UFC 115 is expected to take place on June 12 from the GM Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Barry had previously been expected to face off with Gilbert Yvel at UFC 115 before the news of the anticipated bout with Cro Cop scratched the possibility of that match-up taking place all together.

Mirko will be looking to make it two in a row in the Octagon coming off the heels of the Pride veteran’s UFC 110 beating of Anthiony Perosh, while Barry is in a similar position with his most recent outing being a UFC 104 “Fight of the Night” TKO of Antoni Hardonk.

Tha chances of a bout between the two notoriously devastating kickboxers going to the judges would be a longshot at best.

    Ah, not the best matchup for Cro Cop right now: a fearless hard-hitter..
    If Cro Cop fights Berry like he fought Perosh (i.e.- no worries, constantly attacking) he can win..
    Otherwise, he’ll be broken..

    It is sad to see the monsters of Pride ridin off into the sunset!

  • freebirdjd says:

    Unfortunately, this will be bye bye for Cro Cop :(

  • Makington says:

    Unless CroCop gets a hold of a time machine and fights like he did in Pride, I don’t think this is a good match-up for him. CroCop was downright scary a couple years ago, while Barry is downright scary right now.

    I’m kind of torn with this fight, because it has easily jumped to one of my most anticipated fights that I can’t wait for, but I’m also a huge fan of both fighters. I would friggin love for Mirko to get a big win just as much as I want Pat to keep moving up the ranks but unfortunately one of them has to lose, and probably violently. CroCop does seem in a bit more of a desperate situation so we’ll see how he reacts to it but I’m giving Barry the edge here.

    as long as Barry does not have to grapple he will do fine
    as long as Cro Cop fights strikers he has a chance.

    both are set up for success. However, neither will make any noise in the HW title picture. Not an MMA match, but a glorified K1 bout. Should be entertaining.

    Barry (with an A) wins and Mirko does not get cut from the UFC

  • LiverPunch says:

    Would rather see Crocop fight Rothwell and Barry fight Yvel.

  • Wow…this is gonna be good. The only question I have is, Who’s Lead leg is gonna fall off first?

  • cocoonofhorror says:

    Barry will merc Mirko.

  • Rece Rock says:
