Barry began practicing Sanshou while a college student and won numerous titles at domestic and international level before joining K-1 in 2005 where he competed for two years, mostly as a participant on the promotion's North American events.[citation needed]

In 2008, he embarked on a career in MMA, winning his first three fights by knockout before signing a contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship and competing in the promotion for the next five years as a Heavyweight, compiling a 5–7 record with only one of the matches going the distance. Barry retired from MMA in late 2013 and returned to kickboxing the following year, joining Glory.[citation needed] He is also the fiancé and training partner of former UFC Women's Strawweight Champion, Rose Namajunas.


Barry was born in New Orleans, Louisiana to an American military veteran father of European descent and an African-American mother. Barry's parents opened bilingual elementary schools around the world and as a result Barry was raised in Bogota, Colombia until the age of six. When his father died from cancer, he moved back to New Orleans with his mother, older sister and younger brother. Although he did not start training in martial arts until the age of 21, Barry grew up a fan of ninjas, the Street Fighter video games and Jean-Claude Van Damme films and often watched K-1 kickboxing in his youth.[4] Barry has stated that his three heroes are his mother, Mike Tyson and Sagat, a Thai boxer from the Street Fighter video games.[5]

He worked as a pizza delivery man prior to his career in professional fight sports.[6]


Beginnings in Sanshou (2002–2005)Edit

Hailing from Eastern New Orleans, Barry started training professionally in Wushu, sanshou and Kickboxing at the age of twenty-one while a junior sociology major at the University of New Orleans when he walked into Russell Jones's Kickboxing Gym in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He made his professional debut on November 2, 2002 at the U.S. Open International Martial Arts Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada, winning the Sanda Kungfu Federation (SKF) United States Heavyweight Championship with a fourth round knockout over Robert Parham. He then left Jones' gym and pursued kickboxing full-time with Master Shawn Liu at LIU International in New Orleans.[citation needed]

In June 2003, Barry fought twice at the Art of War: China Comes to Atlanta event in Atlanta, Georgia where he won both a US National Sanshou team spot and the SKF World Heavyweight Championship by knocking out Paul Gurevidius with a high kick. In November 2003, as a US National team member, Barry participated at the 2003 World Wushu Championships in Macau, winning a silver medal in the −90 kg/198 lb division. He visited China numerous times from 2002 through 2008, amassing over fifty amateur bouts while competing in one of Shandong's stadiums and training with Chinese National Sanshou team at the Shaolin Temple.[citation needed]

On December 18, 2004, he won the K. Superstar Championship in New Orleans by KOing John Dixson, and a month later in Gulfport, Mississippi, he won the Kings of Kickboxing tournament by stopping Marshall Berger with low kicks in the final.[citation needed]

K-1 (2005–2007)Edit

Having taken part in K-1 tryouts held in Las Vegas in 2004, Barry was recruited by kickboxing's premier organization and made his promotional debut against Scott Lighty in a tournament reserve bout at the K-1 World Grand Prix 2005 in Las Vegas on April 30, 2005, losing for the first time in his career by split decision.[7][8]

In June 2005, he met with American kickboxing great Duke Roufus while he was commentating on an event in Biloxi, Mississippi and the two became close when Barry stayed with Roufus in Milwaukee, Wisconsin after losing his home in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina,[9] a tragedy which also claimed the life of his grandmother. After switching to Roufus' gym in Milwaukee, Barry won his first K-1 fight in his sophomore appearance when he knocked out Mark Selbee inside the opening frame at the K-1 World Grand Prix 2005 in Las Vegas II on August 13, 2005.[10][11] Later that month Barry's grandmother was killed in Hurricane Katrina.[12]

He fought to a split draw with Russian Kyokushin Karate stylist Aleksandr Pitchkounov in a non-tournament bout at the K-1 World Grand Prix 2005 in Tokyo Final at the Tokyo Dome on November 19, 2005. They rematched in the tournament reserve match at the K-1 World Grand Prix 2006 in Las Vegas on April 29, 2006, and Pitchkounov won by split decision.[13]

Following this, Barry moved to Amsterdam to train under four-time K-1 World Grand Prix Champion Ernesto Hoost at "Team Mr. Perfect" based out of Vos Gym.[14] Away from K-1, he defeated Scott Lighty in another rematch at Shin Do Kumate XI in Tampa, Florida on December 8, 2006. After hurting Lighty with low kicks throughout the first two rounds, Barry scored a high kick knockdown at the beginning of the third before finishing him off with another high kick shortly after.[citation needed]

He then returned to K-1 to compete in the eight-man tournament at the K-1 World Grand Prix 2007 in Hawaii on April 4, 2007. He was initially set to face Jan Nortje in the quarter-finals[15] but his opponent was then changed to Gary Goodridge.[16][17]

Barry twice sent Goodridge to the canvas with low kicks in the early going, the first ruled a slip, the second a legitimate down. He then landed a left high kick on the Trinidadian brawler and, although it did not knock him down, it opened a large cut which caused the ringside physician to call a halt to the bout and send Barry through to the semis where he had his rubber match with Aleksandr Pitchkounov. He was floored with a mawashi geri in round two and received a count from the referee in three after being injured when the Russian checked one of his low kicks, losing by unanimous decision.[18]

Barry took part in his second K-1 tournament at the K-1 World Grand Prix 2007 in Las Vegas on August 11, 2007.[19][20][21]

Drawn against Rickard Nordstrand in the quarter-finals, Barry scored a knockdown with a high kick inside the first twenty seconds before stopping the Swede with his patented low kicks in round two. He then went up against Zabit Samedov in the semifinals and lost via split decision after a back-and-forth fight.[22]

In his final K-1 appearance, Barry lost to Freddy Kemayo via technical knockout due to a broken nose caused by a knee strike in the opening round of their contest at K-1 Fighting Network Prague 2007 on December 15, 2007.[citation needed]

World Combat League and transition to mixed martial arts (2008)Edit

In 2008, Barry left Team Mr. Perfect and returned to Duke Roufus at Roufusport after a fallout with Ernesto Hoost, as he felt that the Dutch legend neglected him as a trainer and showed little faith in him. In an interview with Fight! magazine in 2009, Barry stated:

Ernesto Hoost just didn't give a fuck about me. He didn't care, man. I was like hey, I'm leaving, man and he was like so?.[23]

Hoost denied Barry's claims in a 2014 interview, saying that he gave Barry "his all and didn't get a lot back". He also complimented Barry's physical ability but questioned his mental strength.[24]

Barry competed a total of seven times between May and August 2008. Fighting in the World Combat League, a team-based kickboxing competition in which matches are fought over one round, he represented the New York Clash in the -107 kg/235 lb weight class and amassed a record of 3-1 with his only loss coming to a young Jarrell Miller.[citation needed]

He made his debut in mixed martial arts on May 30, 2008 against thirty-eight fight veteran Mike Delaney at Combat USA: Battle in the Bay 7 in Green Bay, Wisconsin and won by TKO in round one after felling his opponent with low kicks.[citation needed] He then knocked out John George with a high kick in his next outing at Combat USA: Fight Night on June 28, 2008 in Harris, Michigan. In his third fight with the promotion, Barry won the Combat USA Heavyweight title when he stopped fellow kickboxer Simon Diouf with low kicks at Combat USA: Battle in the Bay 8 on August 22, 2008.[citation needed]

He was set to face Andre Walker at Strikeforce: Payback in Broomfield, Colorado on October 3, 2008[25][26] but instead signed a contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship and was replaced by Carlos Zevallos in that bout.[27]

Ultimate Fighting Championship (2008–2013)Edit

Barry was defeated by Mirko Cro Cop in the co-main event of UFC 115 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in June 2010.

On December 27, 2008, Barry made his debut in the UFC against Dan Evensen at UFC 92 in Las Vegas,[28] injuring the Norwegian's left knee with brutal low kicks at 2:36 of the first round thus winning via TKO.[29]

He then fought UFC newcomer Tim Hague at UFC 98 on May 23, 2009.[30] After winning much of the exchanges on the feet, Barry was taken down by Hague and submitted early in the first round with a guillotine choke.[31]

His next fight was against fellow kickboxer Antoni Hardonk on October 24, 2009 at UFC 104 in Los Angeles, California.[32] After weathering several powerful leg kicks and punches in the first round from Hardonk, Barry found his range in the second round with devastating fast jab combinations, stunning Hardonk several times before dropping him followed by a flurry of punches to finish the fight at 2:30 of the second round.[33] The win earned him "Knockout of the Night" and "Fight of the Night" honors which brought his total fight purse to $134,000.[34]

In a post-fight interview, he claimed to have previously been broke, living on ketchup and rice, and was six days from being evicted from his home.[35] In addition to battling heavy financial burden, this fight was also very personal for Barry as he was fighting a member of Ernesto Hoost's training camp. Barry claimed that Hoost had given up on him, resulting in a falling-out between the two and that he waited five years for validation and finally got it when he knocked Hardonk out.[36]

Barry was next scheduled to fight Gilbert Yvel,[37] but his opponent was later changed.[38]

Instead, he fought PRIDE 2006 Grand Prix champion Mirko Cro Cop in the co-main event at UFC 115 in Vancouver, Canada on June 12, 2010.[39] Barry dropped and stunned Cro Cop twice in the first round, but ultimately lost the bout via submission due to a rear-naked choke in round three.[40] Barry sustained a broken hand and foot in the fight and he was placed in a wheelchair in the immediate aftermath.[41]

His next fight was against Joey Beltran at UFC: Fight For The Troops 2 on January 22, 2011, in Fort Hood, Texas.[42] Barry used effective leg kicks in the bout to eventually wear down the mobility of Beltran and win a unanimous decision (30–27, 29–28, and 29–28).[43] At the end of the bout, he jokingly "fired" Matt Mitrione. This was likely a joke based on Mitrione firing his agent publicly after a previous fight.[citation needed]

Barry fought fellow striker Cheick Kongo on June 26, 2011 in the main event of UFC on Versus 4 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on June 26, 2011[44] and lost the fight via knockout in the first round in stunning fashion when early in the first round Barry dropped and stunned Kongo, after weathering the flurry of strikes by Barry, Kongo (who was still in wobbly legs) caught Barry with an overhand right on the ear followed by an uppercut to the chin knocking Pat out cold.[45] This was the first KO loss of Barry's career in both kickboxing and MMA. Barry faced the tallest fighter in the UFC Stefan Struve on October 1, 2011 at UFC on Versus 6 in Washington, D.C.[46]

Barry was winning much of the striking exchanges midway into the second round but in a turn of events, Barry took Struve down to the mat and Struve locked in a triangle choke. Barry slammed Struve but left his arm exposed and Struve was able to secure an armbar. Barry lost by triangle armbar submission at 3:22 of the second round.[47]

2011 also saw Barry leave Roufusport for Team DeathClutch in Alexandria, Minnesota.[citation needed] Barry faced highly touted brawler Christian Morecraft on January 20, 2012 at UFC on FX 1 in Nashville, Tennessee.[48] Despite being caught early in an armbar, Barry escaped the submission attempt and won the fight via KO at 3:38 of the first round.[49] His win over Morecraft earned him Fight of The Night honors for the second time in his career.[50]

On May 5, 2012, Barry faced the heavy-handed Lavar Johnson at UFC on Fox 3 in East Rutherford, New Jersey[51] and lost via TKO in the first round. Despite the loss, Barry was able to get a takedown during the fight, and even attempted a keylock submission. However, Johnson worked his way to his feet, trapped Barry against the cage, and began to tee off with punches until Barry dropped to the floor and the referee intervened to stop the fight.[52]

Following Team DeathClutch's closure, Barry briefly moved to Greg Nelson's Minnesota Martial Arts Academy in Minneapolis, Minnesota in October 2012[53] before relocating to Arvada, Colorado to train under Trevor Wittman at the Grudge Training Center.[citation needed]

Barry faced former Muay Thai Champion Shane del Rosario at The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson Finale on December 15, 2012.[54] After a close first round where Barry was able to escape from some submission attempts, he connected with a huge left hand followed with a flurry of punches, finished by a devastating right hook, and won by KO at 0:26 of round two, earning Knockout of The Night honors for the second time.[55]

He faced Shawn Jordan on June 15, 2013 at UFC 161, losing by TKO in round one. However, later reports came that the stoppage might have been caused by an eye poke from Jordan. The report showed that the uppercut Jordan landed (which seemed to daze Barry) wasn't an uppercut but an open hand blow. The report also showed that Jordan's fingers found their way into Barry's eyes. Following the uppercut, Barry was trying to protect the eye from the next of Jordan's punches. Barry did not mention that he had been poked in the eye, but pictures from the day after the fight show that he tapped to strikes three times.[56]

In what would be his 12th and final UFC appearance, Barry was knocked out with vicious ground-and-pound from the mount by Soa Palelei on December 7, 2013 at UFC Fight Night 33 in Brisbane, Australia.[57]

Return to kickboxing; Glory, and independent promotions (2014–present)Edit

On January 28, 2014, Barry announced his retirement from MMA via Twitter[58][59] and his manager subsequently stated he would likely return to kickboxing.[60] He appeared on Ariel Helwani's show the following month and announced that he had signed for world's top promotion, Glory.[61]

In his first outing since returning to kickboxing, a warm-up fight ahead of his Glory debut, Barry defeated domestic heavyweight Ed Burris at Combat Sports Challenge 39 in Richmond, Virginia on March 22, 2014,[62] scoring a knockdown with a bodyshot in round one before stopping Burris with a flurry of punches in round two.[63][64][65]

He lost to Zack Mwekassa in the Glory 16: Denver - Heavyweight Contendership Tournament reserve match in Broomfield on May 3, 2014,[66] suffering an early knockdown before being put away with a left uppercut towards the end of round one.[67]

Just a day after this loss, it was reported that Barry was scheduled to rematch Mirko Cro Cop at Glory 17: Los Angeles in Inglewood, California on June 21, 2014.[68] He withdrew from the fight for undisclosed reasons, however, and was replaced by Sergei Kharitonov.[69]

Still under contact with Glory, Barry had his next fight in a different organization when he took on Demoreo Dennis at Legacy FC's first kickboxing event on January 16, 2015.[70][71][72]

After an even first round, Barry started to land heavy leg kicks, from which he landed a knockdown in round 2, and punches, as well as using a good defense against his opponents strikes. Barry got the best of it for the last two rounds, earning the decision victory.[73]

Barry was expected to return to Glory and face veteran Mourad Bouzidi on April 3, 2015 at Glory 20.[74][75] However, Barry was forced out of the bout due to an injured hand and was replaced by Dustin Jacoby.[76]

Personal lifeEdit

Although their relationship is controversial due to allegedly beginning when she was a minor, Barry is the fiancé and training partner of former UFC Women's Strawweight Champion Rose Namajunas.[77][78][79]

Following their fight at UFC 115 in June 2010, Barry and Mirko Cro Cop have developed a friendship and Barry frequently trains with Cro Cop at his training center in Zagreb, Croatia.[80][81]

In August 2017, Barry claimed to have been one year sober after many years of alcohol and prescription drug abuse.[82]
