No, it doesn’t. She said that she wrestled as a senior in high school, then started doing kickboxing and met Pat.
She said she first walked into Roufos Sport at 14, then left and came back at 17. She doesn’t say anywhere that she met Pat at 14.
I hadn’t read all Pat’s quotes when I posted above, and I agree…it’s creepy to hear a grown man talking about love at first sight with a 17 year old…but based on the timeline Pat describes, and Rose saying she met Pat when she started kickboxing AFTER she wrestled as a senior in high school…they both say they met when she was 17.
Not saying that makes it cool…but both of them are saying they met when she was 17, not 14 as people keep repeating here.
It’s well documented that Pat knew her when she was 14 and they were “hanging out” publicly when she just turned 17. Pat is also on record saying he fell in love with her the first time he saw her, which again, was at age 14. It’s unclear if they were “hanging out” before that.
We’ve been banging on about this before, this fuckin Jimmy Savile aspect of MMA.
Good of Sean to bring attention to this matter.
Let’s hope it gets properly investigated and peanut head gets locked up for a long time for grooming and statutory rape.
To be fair anywhere there’s a hierarchy of male-dominated power and young inexperienced women at the bottom, this happens.
You have something inherently valuable in young attractive impressionable women and men in the positron to take advantage if they’re scummy. Not everyone is able or willing and keep their hands out of the cookie jar which is why a system of vetting so important which almost never exists.
Strickland is just saying what everyone was saying on these forums for years…
Do you remember these forums when Barry started dating Rose? People were calling him a groomer creep and always taking shots at him for being a decade older with a 20 year old. Then when they took a break for a bit people were even more harsh. I just remember the comments were so disrespectful and Pat Barry was still posting here at the time.
