“I’m happy. Pat Barry is a guy who’s been in wars. He’s fun to watch fight, but it gets to a point where when a guy gets knocked out a few times I would love to see them retire. So many fighters that I’ve had conversations with really, really like Pat Barry, and really care about the guy. Brock Lesnar doesn’t fucking like anybody, but he really likes Pat Barry and has a lot of respect for Pat Barry. If Brock Lesnar likes you, holy shit, you’re doing really good. You must be a really fucking good guy.”
Earlier this week we learned that Pat Barry requested a release from his UFC contract so that he can pursue other ambitions.
The UFC boss, Dana White, took to his UFC 169 pre-fight media scrum to discuss Barry’s exodus from MMA and Dana is, apparently, happy about it.
