UFC heavyweight Pat Barry set the record straight himself on Twitter recently, stating that he has not been cut by the promotion.

Barry, 34 years old, dropped to 8-7 overall with a first round knockout loss to Soa Palelei earlier this month. Rumors of his release started via social media, but “Hype or Die” made sure to clear them up.
Since joining the UFC with a 3-0 pro record in 2008, Barry has posted a 5-7 mark – including four knockout and three submission losses. He does own seven finishes in his career, with just one fight going to a decision.
