Everybody knows that UFC heavyweight Pat Barry is a deadly striker, but equally it’s common knowledge that his ground game is still a major weak point.

Apparently Barry is working to address that issue however, as is apparent in new footage that has emerged of him competing at ‘Combat Corner 6,’ a submission grappling tournament this weekend.

Going up against two big opponents it’s evident that Barry’s grappling is still very raw at this stage, but gaining experience in tournaments like this can only help him in the Octagon.

Watch both matches below, and pay close attention to 1.19mins of his fight with Hamlin when Barry shows a rather acrobatic escape from a standing guillotine choke.
