Who Is Patrick Barry?

Quite a bit of buzz has picked up on Patrick Barry, who is making his UFC debut tonight against Dan Evensen, in the past few days. If you’re not familiar with Barry, he’s a devastating striker and former K-1 fighter who’s expected to make waves in the division.

There isn’t a whole lot of video of him on YouTube, but I did find his fight against someone you are familiar with, Gary Goodridge, from last year. Yes, I know Goodridge is not a good barometer to see what level a fighter is at, but as you’ll see in the video, Barry has wickedly powerful kicks, especially leg kicks. He literally chops Gary down like a tree. The fight may leave you thinking Barry is a human wrecking machine, but before you get too excited, there’s also this video of Barry losing in Chuck Norris’ WCL of all places.

Even with a win tonight, the jury will still be out on Barry as a mixed martial artist, but, at the very least, he seems to be a very exciting fighter and one to keep your eye on.
