Rewind: Pat Barry

Feb 16, 2014

As a youth, Pat Barry was a martial arts and video game fanatic who often found himself lost in a fantasy world, in which he swiftly dispatched marauders and disappeared into the night like a ninja. Then one day in a kickboxing gym he realized that was all crap and broke down crying.

Coming off a unique run as a UFC heavyweight gunslinger, Barry's life in fighting is an illustration of how mixed martial arts can be a cold reality check for even the most creative dreamer.

On the latest Sherdog Radio Network Rewind, Barry joins host Jack Encarnacao for a candid, insightful, two-plus-hour "Sunday Sitdown" chat about his life and his UFC career. Barry offers a window into self-doubt, confidence, and punishment that few fighters can so well articulate, and reflects on why he felt the time was right to return to his first love, kickboxing.
