UFC NEWS – Pat Barry Ready To Put Improved Ground Game On Display Tomorrow night

“Wrestling and jiu-jitsu and strength are my weakness when it comes to fighting. Punching and kicking can always get better, but it’s the wrestling and grappling and what not, that’s my Achilles heel. [DeathClutch] is a gym that’s filled with gigantic wrestlers who all grapple, Comprido is the jiu-jitsu coach. They’re all stronger than I am, they’re all taller than I am, which is everyone I fight. I’m the smallest guy in the room. This is what I need to be surrounded by. The world doesn’t know it yet, but [I’ve gained] a tremendous amount of growth in my wrestling and my jiu-jitsu and my poise while being on my back. Strength, just all around confidence, tremendous amounts. The only problem is that with all that growth and with all that gain, you now have to actually do it live.”

    Pat Barry should remain in the UFC no matter what just for his great interviews…ummm.
    on second thought, nah….dude, you gotta start winning!

    He’s got everything but luck and a ground game but according to him he’s improved. I hope he wins because he has gravitas and a positive attitude.

      I want to see pat barry excell, i really do. But he has got to get some better luck. I mean he dropped cro cop twice and ended up getting choked out at the end of the round. And he was destroying Kongo but got caught. I think he is the best striker in the heavyweight division in terms of skill and power but I to hope he really has some ground skills now.

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        This might sound disrespectful to Cro Cop but I think Pat gave it to his hero because he demolished Anthony Hardunck. Probably the best example of Pat Barry’s abilities that I have seen.

          Yea after seeing how easy pat dropped him in a few seconds of the first round, and then how easy cro cop was kicking pat i thought barry let cro cop have that fight as well
