The only story better than a broke Pat Barry winning $120,000 in bonus money is a broke Pat Barry trying to deposit $120,000 in bonus money. From MMAScrapsRadio (transcript via MiddleEasy):

 

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??. Hey 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 didn?t laugh. [Ed note: I did] 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.

 

How do you not love this guy?

You'd think in this day and age, the UFC would have some form of Direct Deposit method, instead of sending out a paper cheque for 120,000.

 

Hilarious story though - I was impressed by Barry and am glad he got some much deserved cash.

haha thats pretty funny. I thought it was gonna turn out bad but im glad it didnt. Pat Barry is the man! and he really did deserve that money because he was flat out broke before the fight and he put on a great performance and took out Anotoni Hardonk you could tell how much the fight meant to him after it ended by his emotions and that wicked awesome backflip!!!!! Pat is my new favorite fighters because not only is he a great fighter that has awesome strikes but he is a very cool and likeable guy. he always has something good to say and ill be watching all his fights. I know he will continue to impress in the future!!!!
