White 'happy' to see Pat Barry retire


UFC heavyweight Pat Barry recently announced an indefinite leave from MMA and was released from his contract. At a UFC 169 media scrum, UFC president Dana White declared he loves to see fighters retire when they have suffered a few knockouts. Barry lost three of his last four by KO or TKO.

Trent Reinsmith has the story.

"I'm happy," said White. "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 f---ing like anybody, but he really likes Pat Barry and has a lot of respect for Pat Barry. If Brock Lesnar likes you, holy s---, you're doing really good. You must be a really f---ing good guy."

However, while Barry is done with MMA, at least for the time being he is apparently moving back to his base of kickboxing, where the head trauma is notably higher.

Its kind of funny that a guy who keeps getting KO'ed in MMA is now going to a sport with "better strikers".....Good Luck to Barry. He's a great guy as far as I've seen...

As much as I love watching Pat Barry, whatever he chooses I'll support. Always came to fight -- and one of the scariest strikers.

Wouldn't be the first time. I think got the gist (saying that even someone who doesn't like anyone likes Barry)? Purposely took it too far.....maybe just didn't realize how far.

"If Brock Lesnar likes you......"? Are you fucking serious!?!?!?!? Who gives a shit if Brock like you??? I am sorry, but to be totally honest, I couldn't stand Lesnar. Also tired of hearing about Dana talking about him coming back to MMA! Can't speak from personal experience, but Pat seems like an all around great guy. I wish him the best in his future, and hope he does whatever makes him happy.

I'm not so sure I'd want to see him restricted by Fox's image policies. The UFC need content for the fight pass, give Pat his own web show.

Get Pat a job on Fox. A personality like his would be awesome on da TV.
