UFC Heavyweight Pat Barry got TKO'd by Shawn Jordan at UFC 161 but Barry's manager blames an eye poke, not an uppercut for the loss.

what if it was a street fight, he was done imo, its great when a ref can stop for a break after an eye poke but when he can't spot it you should still be defending yourself.

I didnt see an eye poke I thought Jordan landed an uppercut to the eye but I could be wrong

I will have to watch the fight in better quality. From what I could tell I thought Barry did get poked in the eye because of how bad is eye itself look after it was stopped. But could have just been a knuckle landing just right. Doesn't matter either way the commission wont do a damn thing about it. Look at the Kevin Burns vs Anthony Johnson fight. Anthony was poked in the eye I think 3 times before 4th time was so bad Rumble fell to the ground in pain. The Ref Steve Mazzagatti gave the TKO win to Burns. Then right after this Mazzagatti told Johnson he was sorry and had made a mistake. So even with video proof and ref even saying he made a mistake the commission still wouldn't over turn the fight. Now I'm not saying Barry is protesting the fight but just saying its pointless if he did.

Barry retreated like he got poked - not like he got punched.

And I don't think there's any way he gets cut. He's got a decent following and a fan friendly style.

It all looked clean to me. Doesn't help the argument that his chin has been called into question before.

I think the punch landed and so did a thumb to the eye, Jordan didn't have his fingers extended or anything but to me Barry looked like to have gotten a thumb in the eye after the punch landed.. At least from that gif and pic.

Pat deserves another fight, and Jordan should get someone a little higher on the ladder.

Hard to tell if he got poked in the eye or just took a nice uppercut to it.

I really hope he didn't, look at his head snap back with each blow. If he got eye poked and had that kind of result that would be absolutely brutal

If there was an eye poke, it wasn't in the first four shots that landed, so it's a moot point. The two right hand uppercuts cracked him and he started really crumpling after that second one.

I love Pat Barry, but if he wouldn't have been in the way of the punches he wouldn't have gotten hit in the eye, whether it was a punch or a poke, and to me personally it looked like a punch.

Jordan wins fair and square.

I didn't notice it, problly wasn't the uppercuts that caused it.

Barry just needs to realize he's not that good. Eye poke or not it doesn't help the fact he's 1 dimensional ( and not even that impressive at it ) and has no chin. Yeah he's seems like a nice and humble dude, but he has IMO no place whatsoever in the UFC at this point, other than probably a 1st round KO for me to pick.

Honestly i think Barry is too nice, the hugs at weigh-ins, and the fact he fought Cro-Cop with a vagina between his legs....Look i know you can be friends and respect each other but enough with the sensitive vagina shit already and go kick some ass.
