"I’m still hearing about [the Cro Cop loss]. I’m still hearing people. My mother’s hearing this kind of s--t. People are approaching my mother and making these comments to her. It’s still going on now. This is a feeling I haven’t had in a long time. Back in my kickboxing days, I used to have these every once in a while. Just an angry, want to break something, upset at something. I don’t know what it is. I don’t know what it is that’s giving me this feeling, this sensation, but I’m very annoyed. Like I’m extremely annoyed and I feel like I’ve got to break something. I’m the one who I’ve got to prove something too. The world is either going to be with you or they’re going to be against you. … No matter what, people are going to hate your guts anyway. That’s part of the job. We all know it and expect that."
Stocky-and-cocky Pat Barry, still taking heat from the fans for his UFC 115 collapse against Mirko Filipovic, wants to "break something" heading into his UFC Fight Night 23: "Fight for the Troops" bout, which could spell trouble for heavyweight opponent Joey Beltran. "HD" suffered a broken hand and foot before succumbing to perhaps the least technical submission in UFC history when "Cro Cop" choked him out back on Sept. 15 in Indianapolis. Do any MMA Maniacs out there "hate his guts" for coming up lame against the Croatian? Or do you support the former kickboxer in his quest to become a more well-rounded mixed martial artist? Opinions please.
