Veterans Pat Barry, Nam Phan still with UFC, despite erroneous weekend reports

Bradley Kanaris

Despite rumors to the contrary, veterans Pat Barry and Nam Phan remain UFC fighters.

Reports circulated this weekend stating that both fighters had been released from the organization following recent losses, however, both fighters refuted those reports to MMAFighting.com.

Brian Butler-Au, Barry's manager, said UFC matchmaker Joe Silva told him Sunday morning that Barry was not cut, while Phan, who manages himself, said UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby recently told him the same.

Barry (8-7) recently lost via knockout to Soa Palelei at UFN 33 earlier this month, which marked his third loss in four fights.

Phan (18-12) also lost at that event, dropping a unanimous decision to Takeya Mizugaki in his bantamweight debut. That loss was also his third in four fights.

No word just yet when either fighter will compete again.
