Pat Barry's comments deserve praise

Even though he lost to Cheick KongoPat Barry proved once again why he's the man on a recent episode of The MMA Hour. In case you missed it, here's what Barry said: 

On getting KOd for the first time: ""I was like, this is what this feels like? First, I was having this little moment, almost like when you're a kid and you finally get on that scary rollercoaster, like the Texas Giant that you've been avoiding for years and years. Then you finally get on and you realize it's not that bad. Guess what, you don't die when you get on it. ... I got knocked out, but I'm still alive. I can get up, walk around, still function. I'm okay. It's not as bad as I thought.

"Every fight, I can honestly say, a part of me has held back because of that fear. So it was kind of a relief. Like, it finally happened. Now I honestly can't wait to get back into the next one and really go off on someone, because now I don't have to worry about what it's like anymore. I don't have that fear of what's going to happen, because now I already know."

On how it would have been an injustice if the fight were stopped early: "From a fan point of view, there could have been no better outcome to that fight. That was the best possible end to that fight that could have happened. If I would have just kept going and knocked him out, it would have been awesome for me financially and for my record. And yeah, it would have been awesome for the crowd, but it would have been nowhere near as exciting as the way it ended. That was the best ending to that fight possible.

"If Dan Miragliotta would have stopped it, he would have robbed Cheick Kongo of one of the best comebacks inUFC. And if he would have stopped it, he would have robbed the fans of one of the most exciting endings in the history of the UFC. If he would have stopped that fight, with the way it turned out, it would have been a terrible injustice. We would have all missed one of the greatest 20 seconds in MMA ever."    

This just shows that Barry is a class act. Here's another article on it from Octagon Buzz.
