PAT BARRY WINS UFC DEBUT!

PAT BARRY WINS UFC DEBUT!

December 27th, 2008  |  Published in FIGHTER NEWS  |  29 Comments

Patrick Barry won his UFC debut via TKO in the first round. Pat was wanting the KO but Evensen ended up quitting before he could do to that. Thunderous leg kicks delivered by Pat ended this fight.

Here is the play by play by Sherdog.com

Round 1
K-1 veterans Barry and Evenson enter and look very confident. A very sparse crowd looks on from the seats. Barry circles to his left. Barry throws Evenson down but he gets back up. Hard leg kick from Barry. Evenson clinches and pins him against fence. They are separated by reveree Yves Lavigne. Three thunderous right low kicks by Barry. Evensen takes him down. Barry scrambles back up. Barry lands another huge right low kick. Evensen stumbles to his left.
Evensen quits from the low kick. Official time of the TKO is 2:36 of the first.

THE LOOK
One thing that stood out to fans and family members other than the kicks was “the look” Patrick gave the camera when he realized he had just won his UFC debut. It wasnt an ordinary look. You could see in his eyes that there was deep meaning and personal messages going on in those moments.

Knowing Pat, we knew right away that he was looking right at his mother, his friends and everyone who has ever known how bad Patrick has wanted this moment. It wasn’t a look of surprise or a look of arrogance, it was a look of, “mom I’m here, you believed in me, I knew this would happen, and to everyone who has been with me on this journey, we are here.”

You can almost picture Patrick’s mother watching that and connecting with her son at that moment. How proud she must have been.

Minutes before the fight Pat sent out a text to his inner circle. It read, “Here we go again. Another test. Another opportunity to show myself. WHAT I am, what I’m made of. We are all getting in that cage tonight. And when he notices he is fighting all of us, HE’LL HAND ME HIS HEART!!! SO HYPE CAN’T DIE!”

Watch for “The Look” when Pat raises his hands in in victory.

We would like to recognize TapouT, Jesus Didn’t Tap and Gamma-O for taking the chance and supporting the rising stars in the SuckerPunch stable. Through supporting tomorrow’s stars sponsors like them truly help evolve this sport.

    Evensen wanted none of the leg kicks. So much for his plan of taking you to the ground for a little GNP….he couldn’t even lift your leg off the ground when he tried the take down against the fence. Oh well, just another victim who had to be schooled the hard way in the art of HD. I love all of these people who think that you have no jiu jitsu skills. The Viking was the beginning and the heavyweight championship will be the end. Keep it in your sight and HD will provide the focus. Congrats…I’ll take it, even though I wanted to see you kick his head off like Johnny Cage. Now go sit in the shower for 2 hours…we’re proud of you.

    Bring on Cheick!!!! No way he trades leg kicks with you!!! Hopefully, they’ll let you fight Congo before they give him a shot at the title after the Lesnar v Mir fight….

    Any ideas of who you might get next???

    Hey Pizza Boy!

    Damn man, I have seen you grow. You and I have met a couple of times. I used to fight Sanshou with John Wai Kung Fu Academy in Florida. And I have fought in New Orleans at some of Master Liu’s events. You know my business partner Mark Trillas, he and I just opened our school here in Florida.

    You have always been a class act and funny as hell. All that coupled with being a great fighter and I can’t wait for you to have much success in the UFC and show what us Sanshou fighters, Muay Thai kickboxers, and all out strikers can do in the UFC when we train some ground and get in the cage. Hope to train and talk with you again soon.

    Enjoy the win!!!

    GET HYPE!!

    I called it exactly right. Leg kicks will kill a man. Now that you have won your first fight…I got next. Hype or Die! lol. Seriously, that was a top level performance in which you can almost certainly guarantee that the next person that fights you will far the stand-up. Know that the fear will mean your ground game will come in next fight. Get HYPE.

    So glad we got to see the fight during the PPV. Kongo would be a great matchup – get Pat on the main card, has championship ramifications, has the promise of fireworks Joe Silva seems to enjoy setting up. A matchup with someone like Hardonk would be almost certainly main-card status as well considering his turnaround of late. But I would love to see a matchup with someone like Couture as well. Pat with a victory over Couture would lead Couture into Ken Shamrock-like career status but would cement Pat as a legit star in the UFC.
    With the exception of Gabriel Gonzaga and Jake O’Brien, I don’t see a matchup in the Heavyweight division worth avoiding.
    Congratulations Pat and team. Hope Pat came out healthy as can be and even more motivated than before.
    Props.

    That knee buckle was gross, though shielding those kicks wouldnt have been too fun either. Congratulations, theyll definitely keep you busy fighting with a showing like that.
