A heavyweight confrontation between Pat Barry
will take place at
“The Ultimate Fighter” Season 16 finale
, promotion officials
Headlined by a “TUF 16” coaches’ conflict pitting Roy Nelson
Carwin, the Dec. 15 event takes place at The Joint at the Hard
Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The event will also showcase
the reality series’ welterweight tournament finals, as well as a
170-pound clash between Mike Pyle and
Barry, 33, has lost three of his last four fights. The kickboxing
specialist has competed twice in 2012 already, kicking off this
year with a devastating knockout of Christian
Morecraft on Jan. 20. However, “HD” was then knocked out by
hard-hitting former Strikeforce talent Lavar
Johnson on May 5 at UFC on Fox 3. Barry owns six of his seven
career wins via form of knockout and has posted a 4-5 Octagon
record in nearly four years with the UFC.
Del Rosario also enters the cage coming off a loss, as the
29-year-old was handed his first career setback by Stipe
Miocic this past May at UFC 146. Prior to that defeat in his
Octagon debut, the Californian had rattled off 11 consecutive wins
to start his career, besting Brandon
Mahe and Johnson during his three-fight Strikeforce stint from
2009 to 2011.
