UFC 161 results/photos: Shawn Jordan flattens Pat Barry in less than a minute


WINNIPEG – Despite smiles and smirks and hugs, Shawn Jordan didn’t let his friendship with Pat Barry get in his way one bit.

Jordan swarmed his fellow Louisianan early in their fight and earned a quick TKO win.

The heavyweight bout kicked off today’s UFC 161 main card at MTS Centre in Winnipeg. It aired on pay-per-view after prelims on FX and Facebook.

After a bro hug, Jordan and Barry got down to business. A head kick from Barry prompted a smile from his opponent, and a counter from Jordan got Barry to take him seriously.

But it was an uppercut from close range that put former LSU football player Jordan in the driver’s seat. Charging forward, he continued to batter Barry, who slumped to the canvas at the cage before the ref finally halted the attack.

The official time of the stoppage came at the 0:59 mark of the first round.

“I came here with a job to do, and I did it,” Jordan said. “I wanted to keep the pressure on, and I believe in myself. I’m getting better and better and more confident in the octagon. This was a big win here in Canada for me. I think I’m ready to move up, but I will take anyone the UFC says.”

Jordan (15-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) now boasts back-to-back wins in the octagon after a career-low decision loss to Cheick Kongo at UFC 149. Fan favorite Barry (8-6 MMA, 5-6 UFC) continues to hopscotch between triumphs and setbacks, though he’s now drifted into sub-.500 territory in his octagon record.
