Pat Barry to fight for Glory

See also

Pat Barry had a rough finish to his UFC career. “HD” lost 5 of his last 7 fights, most recently being knocked out by Soa Palelei at UFC Fight Night in December. That proved to be enough MMA for him and in January he announced his retirement from the sport via Twitter. But the heavyweight didn’t collect many unemployment checks. Barry announced yesterday that he has a signed a new deal to compete for the kickboxing promotion Glory.

At 34, the native of New Orleans, Louisiana is no stranger to the “other” combat sport. He carries a professional 18-6-1 record having last competed against Freddy Kemayo in 2007 (loss TKO – doctor stoppage). His last kickboxing win came against Richard Nordstrand earlier that same year via a KO.

While no opponent has yet been named, Barry will make his Glory debut in May. First up however will be a bout with American Ed “Black Rage” Burris in March at WKA 39 in Richmond, Virginia.

Barry walks away from MMA with a less than impressive 8-7 record. His biggest win was against the late Shane del Rosario who he knocked out in just 26 seconds. In his time in the UFC, the current Trevor Wittman product won Knockout of the Night and Fight of the Night honors twice. And while he won’t be known for dominating the sport, his gregarious personality and smile will be missed cageside.
