There are fighters that win in exciting fashion. There are fighters that draw it out and consistently win decisions. And there are those that, while they haven’t been able to make it over the crest, but no matter what, they come to fight until they drop.
Much like Arturo Gotti forged a reputation for just such a style of fighting in boxing, Pat Barry and Dan Hardy have done the same in the Octagon.
And while just about every fighter’s goal is to be a champion, there’s a place for those that put on entertaining fights, even if they don’t have gold around their waists… just ask UFC president Dana White.
