    Pat's bout with Cheick Kongo a couple months back was amazing. He may well have gotten robbed, because there were points when Kongo was definitely out on his feet... but coming back from that and knocking Pat's lights out was pretty amazing.

    Fight review: 'UFC on Versus 6'

    Stefan Struve (The Netherlands) vs. Patrick Barry (USA)

    Round one plodded at first, probably in part to an entire foot in height difference between both brawlers. Barry got the first hit with a sky-high kick that Struve shrugged off and responded to with a knee strike. From there, he rushed a second knee at round's end only to have Barry shove him out of the way and leap forward with a front kick that caught nothing but cage.

    Struve sank Barry in round two with a front neck lock, only to transition to a triangle choke instead. Barry dug deep, rose, and dangled Struve upside down before slamming the Dutchman back to earth as hard as he could. It wasn't hard enough, however, and Struve held on to the hold for the tap out victory.

    Result: Struve wins in 3:22 of round two by submission following a triangle choke. This fight won "Submission of the Night" honors.
    Bummer. Barry is now 6-4.

    KO Fight of the Night RD 2: 26 sec

    Now at UFC 8-5-0

    TUF 16 Finale What's Next for Pat Barry?
    By Khurram Aziz (Featured Columnist) on December 17, 2012

    Josh Holmberg-USA TODAY Sports

    Pat Barry has only been fighting in mixed martial arts for four years. In that brief period he’s become a fan favourite despite an unenviable record in the UFC of five wins and five losses.

    On Saturday night he knocked out dangerous heavyweight Shane Del Rosario in the second round, demonstrating once again that, even if he isn’t the most-well rounded fighter in MMA, he’s one of the sport’s most devastating strikers.

    He has a style of fighting fans love to watch and one that has kept him in the UFC despite his mounting losses.

    But that doesn’t give him any easy options for his next fight.

    We know Barry is a solid fighter. Even his losses in the UFC were close contests where a lack of experience and some bizarre twists led to his downfall.

    He was beating veteran Mirko Filipović in their fight at UFC 115, for example, before he succumbed in the final minute of the final round to a rear naked choke.

    Against Cheick Kongo, Barry looked to have sealed the match, knocking the Frenchmen out cold, before he woke him up with a second punch and ended up tasting the canvas himself.

    And against Stefan Struve, Barry had the promising Dutchman backing up throughout the fight before an attempted slam went wrong and Struve was able to sink a triangle armbar.

    That match demonstrated what a truly one sided fighter Barry is.

    Grappling is his weakness.

    However, on Saturday, late in the first round, he almost succumbed to a Del Rosario choke, which he eventually got out of. Barry showed marked improvement in defending submissions and it’s a skill we only expect to see him improve in his next match.

    But that still doesn’t leave any obvious options for his next fight.

    As good as Del Rosario is, he’s not a Top-10 heavyweight. Nor, for that matter, is Barry.

    The Louisiana native has a lot of climbing to do to be considered among the best in the UFC, even though he has consistently shown great potential.

    For that there are any number of heavyweights that could prove stepping stones for Barry.

    Phil De Fries and Todd Duffee are expected to face each other at UFC 155 on Dec. 29. The winner of that match could be a perfect opponent for Barry.

    We trained under the same Shifu back when he was in K1...went on a China trip with him...he's a pretty cool guy, a bit opinionated, but aren't we all?...

    I was real bummed when he lost to Kongo, that was one of the biggest flukes I'd ever seen. I personally think he should drop a weight class. He's the shortest heavyweight on the UFC roster and fights light for a HW...I'm not sure I'd suggest it to him personally though...

    Glad to see him get another win!

    A lot of heavy weights should/could drop a weight class.

    Indefinite leave

    UFC heavyweight Pat Barry taking 'indefinite leave' from mixed martial arts

    By Luke Thomas @SBNLukeThomas on Jan 28 2014, 7:14p 39

    It appears the mixed martial arts run of UFC heavyweight Pat Barry has come to an end. For now, anyway.

    According to a distributed press release by his management where his departure is labeled a retirement, Barry, 34, is taking 'an indefinite leave of absence' from professional mixed martial arts competition. The statement indicates Barry asked for and was given his release from his existing UFC contract.

    "After long discussions with our client Pat Barry over the recent weeks, he has come to the decision that he will be taking an indefinite leave from competing in MMA," his management said via the statement. "The UFC and Zuffa have been very gracious in releasing him from his contract and Pat is very grateful for everything they have done for him and his career."

    Barry exits the sport for now with an 8-7 record. However, he lost three of his last four bouts, including his last two. He most recently competed at UFC Fight Night 33 in December where he lost to Soa Palelei via first-round knockout.

    "Over the past few fights I've just had this sinking feeling in my stomach whenever I have stepped into the Octagon and I realize, I DONT WANT TO WRESTLE," Barry said. "Not saying I will never do MMA again, but right now I just want to hit people. MMA and the UFC have been great to me and I will always support the company and the sport. I want to thank all my fans, sponsors and haters for being with me on this journey and I look forward to what future holds."

    "Pat and I have talked about this for a while now and with recent changes in the landscape of combat sports, he wants to explore some options and try to get back to his roots," said his manager Brian Butler. "He's going to take a little time to clear his head and then we will explore our options. We will keep you posted on things as they develop."

    Barry came to MMA from kickboxing where he amassed an 18-6-1 record and fought nine times for the K-1 organization from 2005 to 2007. He made his UFC debut with a 3-0 record at UFC 92 in December of 2008 where he defeated Dan Evensen via first-round TKO.
    Sorry to hear this but I respect the decision he is making.

    It's a pretty bad idea to do a "warm up" for the biggest kickboxing promotion in the world by fighting a third tier guy in an empty high school gym. I know people didn't want to say anything bad about Pat, but it seemed like a really bad decision, and the end result seems to indicate this was indeed correct...

    Posted by Carrie Brunner — November 13, 2017


    Patrick Barry with his Fiance Rose Namajunas

    Will this Inspiring Moment happen again at K. Warrior -31st KSF US Open MA Challenge on Dec. 2, 2017 in Atlanta? such inspiring moment happened to Patrick Barry at K. Superstar – KSF US Open in Atlanta in 2003, and happened to Mr. Barry's fiance Rose Namajunas at UFC.

    Atlanta, GA November 13, 2017

    Will this Inspiring Moment happen again at K. Warrior -31st KSF US Open MA Challenge on Dec. 2, 2017 in Atlanta? The similar inspiring fighting moment happened to Cung Le at US Open International Martial Arts Championship in New Orleans in 1996 and to Patrick Barry at K. Superstar – US Open International MA Championship in Atlanta in 2003, and it also happened to Mr. Barry's fiance Rose Namajunas who squared away the matches between her and Joanna Jedrzejczyk to capture UFC strawweight title in Madison Square Garden in New York.

    Such inspiring moments have happened to Grand master DeRu's fighters like Cung Le and Patrick Barry many times both in China and the US.

    Such inspiring moments have always motivate and inspire the Shaolin Warriors, especially after watching the UFC matches between Rose Namajunas and Joanna Jedrzejczy. This inspiring and outstanding fighter Rose who just captured UFC strawweight title is the fiancé of Patrick Barry, one of the most successful Sanda/Sanshou students of Grandmaster DeRu. Mr Barry is also Rose Namajunas' coach, and has been working along all the way with her during most of her UFC fighting career.

    In early 2002, Patrick Barry arrived on New Orleans camps of Shaolin Institute after training for a few months with Russell Jones in Baton Rouge. Bored with bowling and gymnastics, Barry had started spending time at Ancona's Gym and kickboxing club, where even untrained kids could find a fight. After he was knocked out, he decided to get some training before he fought again.

    He began his Sanshou kickboxing training with Grandmaster DeRu, who saw his natural talents, his coordination and potentials in his fighting ability. Before long, he was in Gulfport casinos, fought his first pro fight under DeRu, against Robert Paham, a world kickboxing champion. He captured the KSF – Art of WAR II heavyweight champion belt, knocking out Mr. Paham in the 2nd round despite his nerves with shivering moment, before the fight,

    In 2003, Mr. Barry fought twice in KSF Art of War III professional Sanshou/Sanda fights in Atlanta, GA. He won both a US National Sanshou Team spot and KSF-K. Superstar World Title by knocking out Paul Gurevidius, a European Sanda/Sanshou and Thai Kickboxing champion. As a US National Team member in 2003, Barry participated in the Wushu Kung Fu World Championships in Macau, China, winning a silver medal in Sanshou heavyweight division. He went on to win the K. Superstar title at US Open International Martial Arts Championship in New Orleans in 2004.

    From 2002 through 2008, he fought three times at U S Open International Martial Arts Championships and captured three gold medals in heavyweight international Sanshou divisions. He visited China four times with Grandmaster DeRu, competing in one of Shandong's stadiums and training and sparring with the Chinese national Sanda Team in Xi An knocked out the 3-time Chinese national heavyweight champion and trained many times at the Shaolin Temple in China.

    He also participated in “Journey to the East” documentary filmed in China and was named by the Shaolin Temple Masters as a True Shaolin Warrior of the West. He is one of the most loved fighters in China by both audience and the fighters who fought him. His generosity, friendly personality and his happy-joyful attitude has won hundreds of thousands martial artists and audience alike in China. His caring and loving energy affected so many who approached him or trained with him even those fighters whom he defeated and knocked out.

    He has fought for many years in Sanshou circle, K1-kickboxing and later on UFC main card before he moved on to fight on Glory main card.

    It was an incredible moment for Ms. Namajunas, who described her freelings at the moment of her winning, “I just want to use my gift in martial arts to make the world a better place. This belt doesn't mean anything. Just be a good person. I know we fight, but this is entertainment. Afterwards, it's nothing.”

    “We all so happy that she holds such high conscious energy frequency like her fiance, Mr. Barry. We, the Shaolin, as the largest Chinese martial arts family in the world, shall all congratulate her not only her UFC champion belt, but her great spiritual attitude which is so needed in martial arts fighting circles today” said grandmaster DeRu.

    She is absolutely one of the few martial artists who do not only care about winning alone but Zen freedom and consciousness with mind-body development and honor of martial arts. That is so Shaolin original heart and mind transmission.

    It ’s indeed inspiring to all Martial Arts Amateurs and pros alike, especially K. Warriors of Shaolin Sanda on the US Open Martial Arts Challenge fighting platform.

    K. Warrior – 31st US Open MS Challenge, promoting Shaolin Sanda with the theme of “Zen” freedom and potential in mind-body betterment.

    Shaolin Martial Arts is about honor, character and human dignity. The promoter of the K. Warriors, Master DeRu vowed to work together with martial arts community to return to that original martial arts intention to make the world an honorable and better place!

    K. Warriors – KSF 31st US Open Martial Arts Challenge is sponsored by Shaolin Institute and sanctioned by KSF (Kungfu Sanda Federation) under SWF (Shaolin World Federation), highlighting how Zen Conscious Kung Fu Sanshou Fighters, who have passionately trained for years with grit, become. The event is held on December 2nd, 2017 on the campus of Roswell Health Center, 11516 Woodstock Road, Roswell, GA 30075. more info: http://www.shaolin-world.net and 770-286-9808
    I haven't heard much from Patrick Barry or Shawn Liu (Deru) in a while. But then again, I might not have been paying that much attention.
