Former UFC heavyweight Pat Barry receives Purple belt

World-renowned kickboxer and former UFC heavyweight talent, Pat ‘HD’ Barry, has just received his purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. ‘HD’s’ promotion came under the tutelage of Carlos Gracie Jr pupil, Tony Basile, at the 303 Training Center in Colorado.

The ever-animated Pat Barry produced an exciting run inside the UFC octagon, with a promotional record of 5-7 and only one decision. What would have been if Pat Barry started training Jiu-Jitsu much earlier in his career?

Check out ‘HD’s’ entertaining highlights from both his kickboxing and MMA career:

Since retiring from combat sports, Pat Barry has been seen training his fiancee and UFC women’s strawweight contender, ‘Thug’ Rose Namajunas. ‘Thug’ is on a 3-fight win streak in the UFC and is on her way to a second attempt at a UFC title. Look for Pat Barry giving advice in Namajunas’ corner at her upcoming UFC fights.
