Pat Barry Meets Cheick Kongo at UFC on Versus 4 in June


Pat Barry and Mirko Cro Cop Filipovic at UFC 115

Two of the top strikers in the UFC are set to do battle as Pat Barry returns to action at UFC on Versus 4 to face Cheick Kongo in a heavyweight match-up on the June 26 fight card.

Sources close to the match-up confirmed the bout with MMAWeekly.com on Monday.

Barry (6-2) returns to the Octagon after a unanimous decision win over Joey Beltran in January. Speaking at a UFC Q&A just last week, Barry sounded anxious to get back in the cage to compete again and it appears he got his wish.

MMAWeekly.com first announced the Kongo was returning to action on the UFC on Versus 4 card. Now he has an opponent.

Kongo is just 2-2-1 in his last five fights, and looks to get back to his winning ways when he faces Barry in June.

The UFC has not officially announced the UFC on Versus 4 card yet, but it’s expected to take place June 26 with the location being rumored as Milwaukee, Wis.
