Heavyweights Pat Barry and Stefan Struve will look to rebound from first-round knockout losses when the division’s shortest and tallest fighters are scheduled to square off at UFC on Versus 6 on October 1 in Washington, D.C., the promotion announced Tuesday.
Struve (21-5), the tallest fighter in the UFC at 6′ 11″, suffered a first-round KO to Travis Browne at UFC 130 in May after winning five of his last six fights.
Barry (6-3), a full foot shorter than Struve, nearly finished Cheick Kongo in last month’s UFC on Versus 4 main event before being knocked out, which followed a January win over Joey Beltran.
UFC on Versus 6 is headlined by a bantamweight title fight between champion Dominick Cruz and challenger Demetrious Johnson.
