UFC heavyweight Pat Barry was granted his request to be released from the UFC. After suffering two losses in a row, the 34-year-old is taking an indefinite leave to return to his kickboxing roots:
Over the past few fights I've just had this sinking feeling in my stomach whenever I have stepped into the Octagon and I realize, I DONT WANT TO WRESTLE. Not saying I will never do MMA again, but right now I just want to hit people. MMA and the UFC have been great to me and I will always support the company and the sport. I want to thank all my fans, sponsors and haters for being with me on this journey and I look forward to what future holds. After knocking out the late Shane del Rosario in 2012, Barry was knocked out twice in a row by Shawn Jordan and Soa Palalei, respectively. He has been a UFC heavyweight since 2008.
