Pat Barry cut unlikely even after 4th loss in 7 fights

by Thomas Myers | source:

The UFC will cut a fighter after a single loss if the performance is demmed un fan worthy. Rolles Gracie and Antonio McKee for example, were released after their debut losses, in non fan friendly fights. On the other hand, Dan Hardy was not cut after four staight losses.

It looks like Pat Barry can be added to the list of fighters who are brought back because they bring it.

After losing to Stefan Struve last night via submission at UFC on Versus 6, heavyweight Pat Barry is now in the midst of a two-fight losing skid. For most fighters, it would likely mean a pink slip. But, Barry apparently isn't like most fighters, according to White:

"We like guys like that. Guys who are exciting and come out to fight. I don't know. Pat is a guy that we do like. He's one of the guys who always brings it.... I like the Arturo Gatti-type fighters. Guys who always bring it. And that's what this is about. When you're a fight fan you tune in to see fights. And I like guys who do it."

It's clear that Barry has several holes in his game that he must address quickly if he intends on winning. Then again, as long as he makes fans stand up and cheer, win, lose or draw, maybe it doesn't really matter.

In short, when Pat Barry fights, the fans win, so he is likely to stay with the organization.

 I'd love it if they brought Lebanner over for a couple interesting matchups.  Would be cool seeing him vs Hunt or Barry imo. Hunt and Lebanner have quite the history.

Put him in Strikeforce. I'm all for Strikeforce being the home of exciting MMA fighters who have poor records in the big shows. Basically guys who can't stop the American wrestlefuck and who always look for the finish.

 As much as I'd like to see him vs Hunt I think he will fight somone like Morecraft or Broughton.. Barry lost his last 2 and Hunt won his last 2 so I don't think it will happen..
