TUF 16 Results: Pat Barry blasts Shane del Rosario to earn KO win

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

In a bout where the end of the first round seemed to signal Pat Barry was in trouble, his vaunted power punching saved him yet again. Barry stopped Shane del Rosario by KO at :26 of the second round of their bout at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale in Las Vegas, Nev.

The bout began less than auspiciously for 'HD', however.

The two opened the fight by trading middle and leg kicks before del Rosario cliched along the fence. Del Rosario was nearly able to earn a single leg takedown, but a blatant fence grab prevented it. It also went unnoticed by referee Kim Winslow.

Still, after a few more exchanges and leg kicks, del Rasoario clinched again, pressed Barry against the fence and this time was able to yank Barry around to get the takedown. From there, things got scary for Barry as del Rosario attempted an armbar from the back. A transition to the oma plata and a return to back mount is baically where things ended.

The second round, though, is where Barry did what Barry does best. As Barry was backing up, he caught del Rosario flat-footed with a monster overhand left. A clearly rocked del Rosario wobbled back to the fence where two more right hands ended the fight cleanly.

Barry moves to 5-5 in the UFC and 8-5 in his overall MMA career.

MMA Fighting's Shaun Al-Shatti described the second round as follows:

Round 2: Del Rosario connects with a short uppercut. Barry answers with a huge overhand left that puts del Rosario on wobbly legs. Barry lunges forward with four more looping hooks. Del Rosario crumbles to the mat. Wow. This one is over.

Pat Barry def. Shane del Rosario via knockout (punches) at :26 of round 2.
