Watch Pat Barry Get Back To Winning Ways In Kickboxing Bout

Former UFC heavyweight fighter Pat Barry has returned to his kickboxing roots and earned himself a knockout victory at the weekend.

Combat Sports Challenge 39 in Virginia may be a million miles away from the glamor of the UFC, but nonetheless there was still a fight to be won, and Barry did so in style, rocking his opponent Ed Burris with a powerful right hand against the ropes, then cuffing him with another right as Burris began his face-first descent to the canvas 30 seconds into the second round of the contest.

This was very much a tune-up fight for Barry and he’ll now take a step up in competition when he competes at Glory 16 in May, an event that’ll air live on Spike TV.

Check out the finish to Barry’s latest fight below.

Over the years I've watched the UFC develop into the powerhouse it is today, organizations like PRIDE, Strikeforce and WEC rise and fall, and Bellator emerge as a new force on the MMA landscape. Throughout it all I've remained captivated by the sport and I'm excited to cover what comes next here on MMA Insight.
