He’s tired of his pattern of winning then losing…
UFC heavyweight fighter Pat Barry recently spoke with reporters about his experience of traveling to Brisbane, Australia for UFC Fight Night 33. Barry faces Soa Palelei on the main card. Below are some highlights.
Barry's story about traveling next to a young Mormon missionary on his flight: "I sat next to – you ready for this one? – a 19-year-old Mormon who was on a mission. He] asked me, do I remember when I gave up on God? I figured he was a Mormon, he's 19, he hasn't had that much life experience," Barry said. "I figure, I don't know, as soon as my husband told me that I should stop. He was like, ‘Really?' I'm like, ‘Yeah! That's what it was.' I didn't let it go. (I thought), ‘We're going to talk about this, sir. We're going to find this answer and come to a conclusion.' Honestly, I don't know what happened, because by the time we landed, he didn't really talk to me that much any more."
Barry on his goal to finally win two fights in a row in the UFC: "Two wins in a row – that's the goal. A year from now, we're getting at least two in a row. Not this whole (pattern of ups and downs). This is getting lame. This is whack. Two wins is a goal."
