    Default Pat Barry signs with GLORY kickboxing, but hasn't fully retired from MMA

    http://www.mmamania.com/2014/2/3/537...etired-ufc-mma

    But during his recent appearance on The MMA Hour, "HD" revealed that he wasn't going to retire from MMA, but rather, take a break from it after being granted his release from Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

    He explains:

    "I'm walking away from MMA for now. It said I was retiring from MMA and people assumed that I was done with fighting forever and that was going to be the end of it. But, it's not, that's not what happened. I'm just taking a break, taking a timeout from MMA. Just stepping away from it, man. My last few fights, something was missing. Something wasn't there, was a bit of love and attraction to wrestling and grappling to having to defend take-downs. Which is fine, that's part of the sport and that's what I signed up for, but my last two outings that I had, anytime you lose a fight and get up and say, 'I lost, oh well, so what.' It wasn't so much, 'so what,' something wasn't there."

    Clearing up his "wrestling" comments, Barry says it's not that he doesn't like wrestling or jiu-jitsu, he just prefers to stand-and-bang.

    His words:

    "Wrestling, doing jiu-jitsu for the sake of doing jiu-jitsu, that's great, especially with a gi on, I enjoy it, it's great exercise, everything. But when it comes to being in a fight, no thank you. I want to stand and hit each other and let's see who has the biggest nuts in the ring."

    Furthermore, Pat says the fact that kickboxing had a resurrection of sorts, helped make his decision to walk away from MMA and look into the possibility of returning to his first love.

    Glory has the best kickboxers in the world, I doubt that Pat Barry will achieve important things there.

    I'm not so sure. Without the threat of a takedown, I see Pat being able to focus on his strength which is his kickboxing.

    It is not that we are sleeping on his stand up. Obviously he is a very good kickboxer and would probably beat 90% of MMA fighters in a stand up fight. It is just that now he will have to fight the best kickboxers in the world that are simply on another level.
