Scott Barrett defeats Johnathan Ivey
MMA Monster Factory heavyweight blue chip prospect Scott Barrett came out on top Saturday night over Johnathan Ivey in Nashville at the big UCC event. Ivey came out with all guns blazing and stood toe to toe with the XFC and Bellator veteran until Barrett worked him into the cage and dropped him with a big knee. Barrett quickly jumped on him and worked his ground and pound until the ref stopped the fight.
“Ivey is tough man,” explained Barrett. “He came out and brought it to me. I was hitting him with all I had and he was laughing at me. I have a lot of respect for him and he definitely put on a show for the fans. His entrance was phenomenal. I’m glad the fight is behind me because I consider Johnathan a friend and I am glad both of us walked out the cage healthy. Now it’s over and and I hope to fight again in early 2013 to keep the momentum going.”
With the win Barrett improves to 14-3 with the victory. ‘The Bear’ is now 4-1 in his last five fights with three of those fights ending via TKO in the first round.
