Pat Barry says ‘dude’ a lot which makes me think he reads the site. He doesn’t actually, but he should. Just weeks before his UFC 104 fight against Antoni Hardonk, dude was eating rice and ketchup. He literally had nothing left to his name. In an interview with MMAScrapsRadio, Barry said that he really didn’t have any other choice but to win. If he didn’t, he would have been evicted from his apartment six-weeks later (been there done that…and I never even fought in UFC). Not only did he win his fight but he grabbed KO of the night and Fight of the night bonuses which resulted in $120,000 directly in his pocket. Last night, Pat ripped it up on MMAScrapsRadio and talked about the day he cashed in a check for $120,000:
It wasn’t until Tuesday when I got back home that I got a knock on the door, a special delivery for me. I opened it up and when I saw it, I was like, ‘What the…’ They weren’t joking man they seriously sent me a check for $120,000. I wrote to Joe Silva and said if this was an April Fool’s joke, let me know because I’m about to jump up and down and take off my clothes and run around the street naked. They said it was real man, it was real.
I walk outside to get my car and my car doesn’t start so I’ve got on a t-shirt and I’ve got some pink stripy shorts on, some flip-flops and a black eye. So I’ve got to stand in the street and flag people down, and I’m sweating…I’ve got to flag people down with a black eye and sweat marks to try to get me a jump.
I finally get this guy and I say ‘Yo man, I have a $120,000 in my pocket…can you give me a jump?‘. He was like ‘Yeah man I’ll give you a jump’. It looked like ‘Hey man can you help me jump start this car I’m trying to steal right now’. I go to the bank, I’m sweaty, I’ve got the black eye, I haven’t shaven in two days, I’m strung out because I haven’t slept, I have green circles under my eyes so I’m like ‘Can I have a deposit slip mam?’. She gives it to me, I fill it out hand it to her. She looks at the deposit slip, then the check, then looks at me and says ‘Excuse me I’ll be right back’. Then a manager comes out, a guy in a suit and says ‘What seems to be the problem?’. I was like ‘Well I have a black eye, that’s the only problem I know this looks really ridiculous‘. So he asks me for my ID, I hand him my license an he’s like ‘Your license says Pat Barry, but this check was written to Patrick Barry‘. So I decided to be funny and tell him Pat Barry is in my trunk right now. He didnt laugh. So I told him take your time man do whatever you need to do because I have no where to go and my truck probably wont start when I go outside so you can just do whatever you need to do. An hour later he came back and everything was fine, the check was in my bank account.
Dude also said that there is a possibility that he may come out to Technoviking in his next fight which brings hopes to internet meme geeks all across the planet. Actually, let me rephrase in internet meme language: Oh hai, Can I has Teknovikin? Epic Win!’. Damn, I’m pretty sure a few brain cells were just lost reading that (it’s alright, you wouldn’t have done anything with them anyway. They were reserve). [Source]
