Back in the early days of MiddleEasy we created that now infamous list of Top Ten Fades in MMA and discovered that some people are very serious about supporting their favorite fighters hair. So serious that within hours of publishing the list our inboxes were riddled with hate mail for not including the likes of Anthony Pettis and Pat Barry on our list. Although we regret not placing both of those super fresh fades on our list, none of that even matters anymore because Pat for one has sworn off keeping his hight and tight hair–high and tight.
Pat Barry has decided that he will not cut his hair until he gets a submission win in the UFC. This might not seem like a big deal to you, but Pat has always worn his perfectly coiffed shape-up with such fervor and finesse one can only wonder what might happen if Pat were to enter the Octagon looking like Bruno Mars or even worse rocking something more Clay Guida-ish. Will he taunt his next opponent -Lavar Johnson by singing ‘Whip my Hair’ by Willow Smith? We don’t know what will happen with this new long hair, don’t care version of Pat Barry. Oh, the mystery.
From the looks of Pat’s hair at yesterday’s press conference for the May 5th UFC on Fox card, Pat might have enough hair to be able to rock the ‘Pauly D’ just in time for his Jersey octagon appearance. Check out Pat talking to Ariel Helwani about his lengthening locks and his upcoming bout with Lavar Johnson:
