Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight Pat Barry, who struggled against wrestlers during his final stretch inside the Octagon, retired from mixed martial arts (MMA) and returned to kickboxing, because all he wanted to do was stand and bang.
Now we know why.
"HD" unleashed hell against Ed Burris in the WKA North American Championship kickboxing tournament on Friday night (Mar. 22, 2014), in Richmond, Virginia, landing a brutal knockout punch to the jaw of "Black Rage," who face-planted his way out of the corner.
Barry returns to the ring at GLORY 16 against Zack Mwekassa. The event takes place inside the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado, on Saturday, May 3, 2014, and is expected to air on Spike TV. Until then, you can find him at your local hotel, saving damsels in distress.
