We're kicking things off with the heavyweights, as Pat Barry faced Antoni Hardonk. This might be a quick one.
Round 1: Hardonk refuses an obvious gesture to touch gloves from Barry. So Barry nails him with a right to the jaw on the first exchange. Well played, sir. Hardonk with the outside leg kick. Barry with a hard leg kick of his own, and then he counters a Hardonk leg kick with a right hand. Hardonk face-palms Barry before throwing a leg kick and poked Barry in the eye, causing a brief stoppage. Barry with a straight right. Hardonk with inside leg kicks. Hardonk starts with body kicks and Barry hits him with a right. Hardonk slumps down into a double leg shot and just sits there, as if he may have been hurt by the punch. Barry gets him to his back and works for a choke. Hardonk escapes. Hardonk with a head kick that gets blocked. Barry doing a good job countering with fists. Hardonk now has a bloody nose. The round ends with Hardonk still using those kicks. It's a good strategy since Hardonk has a significant reach advantage, except Barry doesn't seem to be having much trouble getting into range. 10-9 Barry.
Round 2: Barry has a good-sized mouse under his right eye. Barry lands a very stiff one-two combo that puts Hardonk back on his heels. Barry rocks him again with a straight left during an exchange. A big right hand sends Hardonk to the canvas, but he's back up. Body kick by Barry. Hardonk ties up Barry and tries for a takedown, which could be an indication of how he feels about Barry's strikes. Hardonk can't get the takedown and they square off again. Barry puts a straight left right on Hardonk's jaw and follows up with a roundhouse right fist, and Hardonk is down for good. Two more punches on the canvas, and the ref waves the fight off.
Winner: Pat Barry defeats Antoni Hardonk via TKO due to strikes at 2:30 of Round 2.
Joe Rogan asks Barry what he was thinking after he got poked in the eye in the first round. Barry says "Ouch."
