12:45 PM ET 12.22 | UFC heavyweight Pat Barry is on a two-fight losing streak and has lost two of his past three fights as he fell to 8-7, but he remains a fan favorite inside of the octagon. Late Friday night, rumors were circling that Barry may have been released from the UFC after his latest knockout loss to Soa Palelei at UFC Fight Night 33, but that is untrue. Barry's manager, Brian Butler, confirmed the news on Sunday morning. The biggest problem for Barry is that he is one of the smaller heavyweights in the UFC and he isn't as well-versed on the ground as you need to be against bigger, stronger opponents. With Barry getting at least one more shot inside of the octagon, it will be interesting to see if he will attempt to drop down to light heavyweight - which is what fans have been hoping to see.
