Barry/ Jeff Cain for MMAWeekly.com
Johnson has always been regarded as one of the more heavy-handed fighters in the sport, and his thorough dismantling of Joey "The Mexecutioner" Beltran only helped solidify that reputation.
Among Beltran's seven trips to the UFC, only one man has been able to stop the aggressive and durable fighter: Lavar Johnson.
Johnson, who trains with American Kickboxing Academy, used a heavy right hand to stun Beltran time and time again, first downing him with a hook to the body before successive uppercuts sealed the Knockout of the Night-winning finish.
But Barry could be equal to Beltran. A K-1 veteran, Barry uses leg-crippling kicks to wilt his opponents, to which Dan Evensen can attest, as "The Viking" was whittled down to size with the thudding and mounting attacks, eventually yielding the TKO finish in less than three minutes.
Johnson will become all too familiar with the daunting blows come this May.
