Barry vs. Morecraft Wiki Update Wiki

Barry and Morecraft took to the cage for the first bout of the main card on FX in a battle of heavyweight finishers.


Morecraft caught a leg kick and used it to take Barry down against the fence, moved into the full mount quickly and sank in a choke, but let go as Barry escaped out the back door. Barry landed a jab then knocked Morecraft down with a leg kick. Morecraft shot in against the cage for another takedown and got it, moving back into the mount with ease. Barry rolled to his knees then managed to roll out of a very tight Armbar and got back to his feet. Barry partially landed a head kick then dropped Morecraft with a left hook and finished him off on the ground with a few big bombs, rendering Morecraft unconscious.


The official end came 3:38 into the first round, giving Barry the KO victory and likely saving his career with the UFC.
