Video: Pat Barry explains why he confronted screaming fan at UFC on FX 5

When a loud and obnoxious fan started booing and screaming obscenities at the John Dodson vs. Jussier da Silva fight last weekend at UFC on FX 5, feared Heavyweight striker Pat Barry leapt from his seat and took him to task.

Who's the pussy now?

That's the question Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight striker Pat Barry had for a loud and obnoxious fan, who went out of his way to heckle the flyweight fight of John Dodson vs. Jussier da Silva at last weekend's UFC on FX 5 event, which emanated from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

"Get Hype" got real.

"During the fight, there were a few distinct boos going on from the crowd. One of them happened to be about seven or eight rows behind us, to the left, sitting on the floor. Big, tall guy about 6-6, 300 pounds, big dude, standing up booing. 'Booooooo! Boo you suck! Boo!' I kept looking back like what the fuck is this dude booing for? Then all of the sudden he stands up and yells 'You fuckin' pussies!' Ack! I fuckin' had it. I stood up. 'Yo man, question, what did you say? Say it again! Say it loud, so everyone can hear you. Say it again.' He was trying to just wave it off. Right. The big man who called everyone pussies, who are fighting in the UFC, is all kinda ducked off and doesn't wanna respond when I just asked, 'what did you say right now?' You're the big killer screaming pussies out loud by yourself, say it again."

I've always been of the opinion that when you buy a ticket to see a performance, you have the right to boo. What you don't have the right to do, is make the experience miserable for the people around you, who also bought a ticket. Apparently, "HD" is of the same opinion, and tried to have a friendly conversation with Chief Boo Bird.
