Pat Barry showed an increasingly strange side of himself during the now infamous MMA Hour interview. In it, Pat tried to shift blame to anyone besides himself and went on to blame Namajunas, Namajunas’ family and Sean Strickland for the outcome of the lackluster performance.
The lack of personal responsibility and accountability didn’t sit right with anyone – especially coupled with his Joshua Fabia like interview antics.
Former teammate Matt Mitrone came to his defense during the ‘Calabasas Fight Companion” dedicated to UFC 274.
“And to be honest with you, I don’t even think I’ve ever watched you fight. But I’m gonna be really honest with you. You’re talking about some s**t. You don’t know what you’re talking about with this whole thing about Pat Barry and Rose, and you call and trying to call Pat a predator and blah, blah, blah.”
“I was there. I was at Duke Roufus’ gym when Rose was 17 years old. I was there on her 18th birthday. I was there for the conversation that Rose had with me as like, hey, how do you think Pat feels about this situation?”
Mitrione tried to defend Barry – but inadvertently pretty much confirmed the troubling relationship timeline.
Barry even went on to claim him and Strickland were friends in a different denial.
“Sean Strickland and I are actually kind of a cool, we’re actually kind of friends. Actually. We’ve had every time we see him, we laugh and joke with this dude all the time.”
Strickland doubled down on his accusations in a video he posted on social media.
“So Matt Mitrione,I heard you had some s**t to say about me and how what I said didn’t sit well with you. ”
“Well, let me tell you Matt I don’t give a f**k what’s that’s what was your f**king can when’s the last time you want to f**k and fight aren’t you like when a right now? You’re a f**king loser. ”
“Me and you aren’t even the same f**king category. I’m going to address what you said about Pat Barry waiting till she was 18”
“Do you understand what f**king grooming means? And mind you? I don’t give a f**k about Rose. I’m gonna give a f**k about you. I don’t give a f**k about Pat.”
“I’m just stating the fact that f**king Rose was groomed but Pat Barry and you defending him you f**king lose your mind illegal f**king check what’s on your f**king laptop? ”
“You f**king can. And Jim West. You’re the same f**king weirdo. I don’t understand why nobody f**king talks about you. But we all f**king know what you’re doing to”
