I was a guest during a taping of WhoopAss Radio last night. I will have the link for the show when it goes up. We spent a lot of time breaking down UFC 78 on the show and devoted some time to talking about Tamdan “The Barn Cat” McCrory.
McCrory, who is featured in FiveOuncesOfPain.com’s “MMA Prospects” section, will be taking on Shooto and PRIDE veteran Akihiro Gono in a match I really wish was being televised on the main card. “The Barn Cat” is just 21-years old and apparently has only been training for a year and a half. He’s unique for the welterweight division because he’s 6’4”.
Gono has an edge on experience in the matchup but McCrory is fearless and will fight him straight up. While I’m picking Gono, a McCrory win would not be surprising in the least.
