With Team Deathclutch no more, Pat Barry moves to a new team

UFC heavyweight Pat Barry had been training at Team Deathclutch in Minnesota, but the fighter had to make a change after the retirements of Brock Lesnar and Cole Konrad.


At last week’s UFC on FX 5, Barry confirmed that Team Deathclutch no longer exist and announced where he is currently training at.

“After I move here (Minnesota) to be with Deathclutch because I needed to be around big guys,” Barry said. “After Brock’s last fight, he retired. Deathclutch was still going on. We still had Marty Morgan. Chris Tuchscherer and Jon Madsen ever once in awhile, but those two kind of starting going into the next phase in their life.”

With Tuchscherer and Madsen no longer with the team, it was only Morgan, Konrad and Barry. Konrad announced his retirement recently, which left Morgan only training Barry. Morgan had to move on and that was the end of Deathclutch.

With the team no longer existing, Barry stayed in Minnesota to find his new training team.

“I am now full time, I was already apart of the academy of Greg Nelson in Minneapolis. I was already apart of the academy, but I was still training with Marty and Cole. I am now full time, 100 percent part of the academy of Greg Nelson’s gym in Minneapolis.”

Barry does not currently have a fight scheduled and would like to return by the end of the year if the UFC has a fight for him. He is willing to step up if any heavyweight gets injured and will wait on the call from the UFC to find out when he will fight next.
