UFC featherweight champ Jose Aldo‘s weight cut might be considerably easier next time out if he’s successful this weekend at UFC 169. UFC President Dana White on Monday told reporters he thinks Aldo (23-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC), who meets Ricardo Lamas in Saturday’s pay-per-view headliner, should move up to 155 pounds to challenge Anthony Pettis (17-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) when the lightweight champ returns from an injury layoff. “The timing has to be right,” White said. “If he defends his title this weekend, Pettis comes back, Pettis fights his fight, and then Aldo.”

(mmajunkie.com)
After long discussions with our client Pat Barry over the recent weeks, he has come to the decision that he will be taking an indefinite leave from competing in MMA. The UFC and Zuffa have been very gracious in releasing him from his contract and Pat is very grateful for everything they have done for him and his career. “Over the past few fights I’ve just had this sinking feeling in my stomach whenever I have stepped into the Octagon and I realize, I DONT WANT TO WRESTLE. Not saying I will never do MMA again, but right now I just want to hit people. MMA and the UFC have been great to me and I will always support the company and the sport. I want to thank all my fans, sponsors and haters for being with me on this journey and I look forward to what future holds.” – HD! “Pat and I have talked about this for a while now and with recent changes in the landscape of combat sports, he wants to explore some options and try to get back to his roots. He’s going to take a little time to clear his head and then we will explore our options. We will keep you posted on things as they develop.” – Brian Butler
