Over the weekend, Brock Lesnar’s name came back up in MMA media circles. But this time, it had nothing to do with rumors of a return to the Octagon.

Instead, UFC president Dana White stated that Lesnar asked him directly to force Pat Barry into retirement. Lesnar and Barry were once teammates in Minnesota at the DeathClutch Gym.

“Brock called me and begged to make him retire,” said White, during his media scrum following UFC Fight Night 40 (thanks to MMAjunkie.com for the quotes). “He said, ‘Dana, you’ve got to get this guy to retire.'”

White stated that Lesnar, a former UFC heavyweight champion, told him, “I don’t consider too many people my friend and I consider Pat a friend.” Barry left the UFC after a fourth straight loss, signing with GLORY and returning to kickboxing.

Earlier this month, Barry was knocked out at GLORY 16. He has suffered four KO losses in the last two years of combat sports career.

White told Lesnar that “There’s only so much I can do.” He discussed how the situation is different for fighters like Barry compared to the Chuck Liddells and Forrest Griffins of the world, who are “multi-millionaires.”

“It’s easy to make them quit,” he said. “It’s tougher to make a guy quit who has to make a living. At the end of the day, it’s the state athletic commissions that should step in and help a guy like Pat retire. Or the people who care about him.”

Barry closed out his UFC career by going just 2-5 in his last seven, including 2013 first round knockout losses at the hands of Soa Palelei and Shawn Jordan.
