Shane Del Rosario seeks his first octagon win against Guto Inocente
The heavyweight showdown between Shane Del Rosario and Guto Inocente is the newest addition to the yearend event of the UFC. The fight will be Del Rosario’s third fight in the octagon and Inocente’s debut.
The 30 year old Del Rosario who has yet to win in the octagon is coming off back to back losses since the merger of Strikeforce and UFC. He is stopped by Stipe Miocic in his octagon debut and was also knocked out by Pat Barry in his most recent outing. Prior to the Miocic loss, Shane has started his career with 11 straight wins via stoppages and 10 of those wins came from the first round.
Guto Inocente is the newest guy that will try to prevent Shane from getting his first win. The Brazilian fighter has amassed a record of 6 – 2 in his professional career with 5 of those 6 wins coming before the final bell. He is now on a four fight winning streak but has not fought since May of 2012.
The two heavyweights will lock horns in the cards of UFC 168: Silva vs. Weidman 2.

Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight, Pat ‘HD’ Barry, shares his thoughts on why he is a fan favorite
Fan favorite, Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight, Pat ‘HD’ Barry will face former Strikeforce fighter Lavar Johnson, in the main card event of the UFC on Fox: Diaz vs. Miller bout this May 5, at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
In a recent interview with SiriusXM Fight Club, Barry tells why he has so many supporters:
“I think the difference… I’m still learning as I’m going, as I do this what I think that the people are…what I know they are gravitating towards more than anything else is that I’m straight flat honest. You know what I mean, I got no (grumbles) ‘I’ll kick you in the face,’ I’ve got none of the normal fighter lines and what not. I tell my everyday story and I think a lot of people are relating to that. That’s what they can do, they don’t look at me as sitting on top of a mountain at some level they can’t reach, like Hulk Hogan or the Rock. They can look right or left and I’m standing right there next to them and they can see that this is an everyday regular guy who has ups and downs ‘like I do’. If he can do it, I can do it too.”
It’s no surprise that Barry is well loved by his legions of fans because not only is he a great fighter, he is also a down to earth person with a great sense of humor.View Article Source »
