Pat Barry gets tooled in a jiu-jitsu match by his majesty, Lord Cro Cop (Video)

"Day two in Croatia. Did some weightlifting this morning then go back into the gym later this evening ready to kick some ass and [Cro Cop] challenges me to a jiu-jitsu match. Why the fuck are we doing a jiu-jitsu match? I have no idea. He has a kickboxing match coming up, but whatever, I'm Pat, I'm in the fucking UFC bitch, I'm in a video game, I'll do it. So, set the terms, hit start, 30 minute round. I got submitted five times. Three Kimuras on my left arm, one triangle and some shit I can't even name. But, because I lost, for the rest of my time here in Croatia the next two weeks, I have to refer to him as your majesty, Lord Cro Cop, and raise my hand and ask to have some water or use the bathroom, which is some shit because I already look like the fucking Hunchback of Notre Dame."

Despite his display of submission defense against Christian Morecraft at UFC on FX last month in Nashville, it sounds like heavyweight hurter Pat Barry still has a ways to go on his ground game, especially if he's getting smoked in a grappling match by famed Croatian kickboxer Mirko Filipovic. "HD" is overseas helping "Cro Cop" get ready for a return to the K-1 circuit while he helps himself get ship-shape for a UFC on FOX 3 showdown opposite Lavar Johnson. The blind leading the blind? Or two talented strikers having a little fun in camp?

Editor's note: Mr. Barry has responded to this story and presented an argument for his defense, after the jump.
