Pat Barry Talks The Deadliest Fighter Alive..A Mother

+

Aaron Tru from MMAprime.tv caught up with UFC fighter Brandon “The Truth” Vera this week. Vera discussed his last fight against Shogun Rua, which was arguably the fight of the year and one of the most fan friendly fights in recent memory. Vera talks about an accidental injury after a trip to Hawaii, where he blew out his MCL during training. He expects to be out another 6 weeks before going back to hard training. For those who do not remember when Brandon Vera debuted inside of the Octagon, he was thought to have been a title contender in both the 205lbs light heavyweight division and the 205-265lbs heavyweight division. During that period, Vera had a unique swagger and aura of confidence surrounding him. Even though Vera lost the battle to Shogun Rua, he proved his warrior spirit and heart, fighting on when he could have quit and putting on a show for the fans till the bitter end when he suffered a tko defeat at the hands of the former Pride and UFC Champion Rua. That battle brought out the old Vera; the one who had that aura of confidence and swagger. Vera makes sure to let all of the 205lbs light heavyweight division know that that are on notice, because he is back and coming for them! All of a sudden, Pat “HD” Barry walks by and we had to invite him into the discussion. Barry had just cornered a fighter in the semi finals of the Bellator Tournament against a fighter from Brandon Vera’s gym. Barry, regarded as the #1 corner man in MMA according to the UG faithful still had the adrenaline going from having literally been the corner man for a split decision victory within 5 minutes of the interview at the most, gave us a raw, uncut and real look into the emotions of a corner man. Pat Barry is then asked about people mentioning his name as a fighter who could step up to face Mark Hunt or another heavyweight on the UFC 160 card now that Overeem is injured and off the card against JDS. Barry offers to not only fight me, but to fight anyone at anytime. Barry continues on to say that he does not want to fight Mark Hunt, Brandon Vera or anyone else, but as a man and a fighter he will. Barry claims to have sensitive, female like hands, but we all know that he is really one of the most deadly and powerful punchers on earth. Barry proves to be a genuine person, who speaks from the heart and is caring of others. The opposite of a tough guy, thus proving the age old saying, that tough guys don’t act tough. Having both Vera and Barry together, I asked them about their significant others: Brandon Vera is the husband of Kerry Vera, who is 2-0 in her undefeated campaign as a WMMA fighter and Pat Barry is boyfriend of rising WMMA star Rose “Thug” Namajunus. Both men are huge supporters of WMMA and go into detail about how they feel it will continue to grow and take off. They talk about how a mother is the most deadly thing on earth. Barry is such a fan of the movement and sport that he is so bold as to say, “If you aren’t a fan of Invicta, get out of my face!” Read more: http://mmaprime.tv/2013/03/08/wmma-husbands-ufc-fighters-pat-hd-barry-and-brandon-vera-epic-interview/#ixzz2MwOjfPMI

Aaron Tru from mmaprime.tv chats with NHB Legend Tank Abbott at King of the Cage. Tank was the commentated for the night, helping out with the KOTC broadcast. Tru asks Abbott about the difference between NHB and MMA. Tank talks about MMA being more of a sport, as NHB is what he is into; "you go in there..two guys enter and only one guy leaves." When asked about the current UFC Champions, Abbott said, "I hardly know who any of them are and that speaks volumes itself." When asked about his fight with Scott Ferrizo in the backyard last year, Abbott comments that, "Well that's happened 100's of times and usually their isn't a camera there....there is no weight classes to hide behind, no rules to hide behind and no judges to hide behind...You better do good or you might being going home in a board bag in a van." When asked about Tito Ortiz losses 7 of his last 8 fights to end his career, Tank comments, "Everyone got taken by a con man...and I think it's funny that even for 10 seconds anyone thought he was tough.." Tru mentions Frank Shamrock's book during the interview, and Tank "doubts he wrote it himself." Going on to say, "I'm sure it probably comes with pictures of crayon drawings..and maybe his first finger painting in there." When asked if he would ever train for a sanctioned fight again, Tank says, "I love to fight and that's who makes me who I am...I am probably the closest thing you have ever seen to a true warrior." "If someone has the right fight for me, I'm whiling to do it." The interview ends with Tru asking about UFC 6 and Ultimate Ultimate 98. The back story is that Tank made it to the finals of both UFC tournaments. However, there is a little bit on controversy, in regards to the semi final bouts in both tournaments. He faced Oleg Tarktarov in the finals of UFC 6 and Don Frye in the finals of Ultimate Ultimate 98; both men supposedly faced team mates/friends in the semi finals and were extremely fresh in the night's final bout; while Abbott had extremely difficult bouts and was spent by the final match of the evening. Tank responds that, "Both of them fought their training partners, who winked and had very easy fights. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that they fought their friends and that their friends laid down..not something that a true warrior would do. Like I said before, these guys aren't true warriors...it's not about winning or losing, it's about the battle."

UFC Fighter Vinny Magalhães discusses who he would like to fight next in the light heavyweight division. With Phil Davis now facing Forrest Griffin at UFC 155, Vinny expresses interest in facing Matt Hamill Next. Magalhães also comments on his so called “history” with the Nog brothers and possibly facing Lil Nog as well. Vinny is a world class BJJ practitioner and is brought in by other fighter’s to help with their training on occasion. One of the fighters that Vinny trains is Chael Sonnen, who will be facing Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title in April of 2013. Vinny is not impressed with Jones’ ground game and says it is “suspect.” Vinny is convinced that Chael can “submit Jones from his back.” Lastly, in a random and bizarre twist, Renato Laranja shoves UFC Fighter Vinny Magalhães and Vinny asks Dana to sign Renato, so they can fight in the UFC.
