UFC on FX 1 Results: Pat Barry Rebounds with Big KO Finish

Posted on by Al Yu

With two consecutive losses, Pat Barry needed a win to keep his Octagon dream alive, and he did so at Firday’s UFC on FX 1 in Nashville.

Barry fought Cheick Kongo last June in an exciting heavyweight battle.  Barry had the Frenchman hurt early on and a victory seemed within reach.  Unfortunately, “HD” found himself on the losing end when a wobbled Kongo countered with a hook that rendered him unconscious.  The knockout was one of the most memorable come back victories in UFC history.

His subsequent fight against Stefan Struve yielded another loss.  Barry held his own against the Dutchman despite a huge reach disadvantage.  In the second round Struve was able to clinch and secure a triangle choke; Barry picked up Struve and slammed him to the mat but he eventually succumbed to the choke.

Tonight Pat Barry faced Christian Morecraft In his eighth UFC appearance.  Both fighters were coming off losses and eager to earn a win.

Barry displayed improved submission defense, surviving many attempts by the larger Morecraft.  With great resemblance to Mike Tyson, a huge left hook by Barry put his opponent flat on his back part way into the opening round.  Subsequent blows forced referee Herb Dean to stop the fight.

“I’m sorry that took me nine getting choked out experiences in order to make that happen.  My bad,” Barry told the crowd afterwards.

“I know the whole world says that my jiu-jitsu coach is James Toney but he’s better than y’all think,” joked Barry.  “High five to everybody who has helped me not get choked out all the time.”

“My confidence is sky high.  But I’m HD.  I’m all or nothing every time.”
