Pat Barry and Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ singing ‘California Dreaming’

Maggie Hendricks

This video is worth the 1:05 it will take you to watch. In fact, it's worth the 5:25 it will take you to watch it five times in a row, because you will. You will want to watch UFC fighters and once opponents Pat Barry and Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic sing along to the Mamas and the Papas classic "California Dreaming."

The two fought at UFC 115, but Barry never kept his fandom of Filipovic a secret. That may explain why he's grinning like a jack o'lantern throughout the video. What impressed me most is that Cro Cop knew the verses to the song. Everyone knows the chorus, but the verses? Wow. English is his second language, but he still knew about stopping in the church they passed along the way.

Indeed, it was California dreaming on such a winter's day.
