A pair of heavyweights looking to get back on track will meet at the TUF 16 finale show as Pat Barry meets Shane Del Rosario.

Sources close to the fight confirmed the newly scheduled bout to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday. MMAJunkie.com first reported the match-up.

It’s been a rocky road lately for Pat Barry, who has gone just 1-3 in his last 4 fights. Win, lose or draw however, Barry is always an exciting performer who goes out to put on a show, and he’ll look to do that once again in December.

Facing Barry will be Strikeforce transplant Shane Del Rosario, who looks to bounce back after the first loss of his career in his UFC debut back in May.

Following a long layoff after being involved in an auto accident, Del Rosario returned at UFC 146 in May, but fell short against fellow up and comer Stipe Miocic.

Now the California fighter looks to erase that memory and get his first UFC win as he faces Pat Barry at the Ultimate Fighter finale on Dec 15 from Las Vegas.
