UFC Fight Night 33 Results: Soa Palelei Records First Round Knockout Over Pat Barry

Posted on by Andrew Potter

Pat Barry vs Soa PaleleiSoa “The Hulk” Palelei made up for his lackluster UFC return by stopping Pat Barry in his home country of Australia at UFC Fight Night 33 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Friday night.

Palelei immediately looked for the takedown, but Barry circled free. As Barry looked for a flying knee, he allowed Palelei to secure the takedown. Barry went for a Kimura from the bottom, but Palelei transitioned to mount and rained down with ground and pound, forcing the stoppage at 2:09 of round one.

An elated Soa Palelei fired up the crowd following the victory leading them in the traditional “Aussie, Aussie Aussie; Oi, Oi, Oi” chant.

The win was Palelei’s tenth straight and sends a warning out to the other heavyweight’s who may have underestimated him after his last fight in the Octagon.

    barry needs to try and make a drop to 205 or retire cuz his chin simply cant hold up at hw. i love the guy as a fighter and obviously dont know him but like him as a person, he seems like a cool dude but i dont want to see dude walking around looking like freddy roach.

    Barry is a talented kickboxer and a real nice guy but has to be on the luckiest guys in the UFC to have been around this long. He has never won two fights in a row. Although I would love to see him and Mark Hunt fight each other.

    I was concerned about his position with the company after this fight as well. When hes on hes on and when hes not fights like this one happen.
