UFC Fight Pass 500 Moments video: Mirko Cro Cop defeats his biggest fan is No. 236

UFC 244 marked the promotion’s 500th live event, and the organization is marking the occasion with “an internally curated list of 500 Unforgettable Moments from UFC history.”

Scheduled to be released in seven installments, UFC Fight Pass 500 Moments shines a spotlight on some of the most memorable highlights – and lowlights – from the UFC’s 26-year run, both in and out of the cage.

UFC Fight Pass officials have committed to sharing video of a few of those key moments with MMA Junkie, as well. This time, we bring you a heavyweight matchup from UFC 115 in June 2010.

On the main card, fan favorite Pat Barry faced off against one of his heroes, Mirko Cro Cop. Admittedly, Barry was a bit starstruck – and it could have been one of the factors that led to his demise.

UFC.com’s Walker Van Wey sets the table:

Mirko Cro Cop was almost every heavyweight’s favorite fighter and 5-1 Pat Barry didn’t muddy the water at all when it came to his admiration for the Pride legend. At the UFC 115 press conference Barry was smiling ear to ear openly admitting he’s looking for the right time to ask for an autograph and that he can’t figure out whether to “use the bathroom or throw up.” Cro Cop, a man of few words and even fewer emotions couldn’t help but crack a smile at Barry’s giddy approach to the biggest fight of his career.
