Barry packs power in all four of his limbs thanks to his kickboxing background. He can flatten foes with his feet or simply throw shots supported by his stocky build. Unfortunately, his size and aggression have also worked against him, resulting in Barry’s lights being turned out upon occasion as well. Regardless, Barry can chop trees with his kicks, and you’d be hard pressed to find any peer interested in eating one of them.
The UFC heavyweight division is forefront at this weekend’s upcoming effort in Houston thanks to a headlining bout between champ Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos as well as featured fights involving Shawn Jordan-Gabriel Gonzaga and Daniel Cormier-Roy Nelson. While all six UFC 166 scrappers have strike-based stoppages to their credit, only two can be considered knockout artists, joining a core group of competitors packing cement in each glove. Some are one-dimensional, some are well-rounded, but all are among the UFC’s hardest hitting heavyweights. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
