Barry vs. Struve Wiki Update Wiki

The co-main event of UFC on Versus 6 featured a the biggest height difference in the history of the UFC when Pat "HD" Barry took on Stefan "Skyscraper" Struve in a heavyweight fight.


The fighters began by cautiously exchanging low kicks as they measured each other up. The audience became slightly restless until the pair began turning up the action slightly a couple minutes in. Barry showcased dangerous power in his counter-punching but was unable to connect. Struve landed several times with his front-kick to the body. Barry's low kicks connected repeatedly, though neither fighter held a definitive advantage. Barry flew forward in a half-mocking flying knee to close the round.


Barry landed a nice uppercut to begin the second round. Struve threw front kicks and a head kick but they were more telegraphed than Barry's strikes. Barry's low kicks looked to be digging into Struve's lead left leg. Struve looked for a standing D'arce choke, transitioned to dropping down for a guillotine choke, and lost the hold. Barry, on top in half-guard failed to recognize he was in triangle choke danger and a moment later was caught tightly. Barry powered up and slammed Struve to the mat in an amazing sight to be seen, but Struve held the hold tightly and forced the tapout from a stuck Pat Barry.


The official end came at 3:22 of the second round via triangle choke submission for Stefan Struve. Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Struve commented, "As you saw, I'm working hard on my kickboxing and my reach... what can I say, I'm thrilled with the result... give it up for Pat, he's one of the coolest dudes in MMA."
