Well, it took our boy Pat Barry about two years to get a fight that he’s long thought would be fun: he’s set to face off with Stefan Struve in October at UFC Live on Versus 6. UFCLoV 6 (that acronym is still roughly half as ludicrous as DREAM’s last show) is expected to go down in Washington, DC; so far it has not been confirmed that all fights on the card will take place in five-sided cage dubbed The Pentagon (Trademark Pending), which will be manufactured under contract by KBR for a taxpayer cost of six million dollars.
Skyscraper comes into the bout off of a pretty gnarly KO loss to Travis Browne at UFC 130 in May. For the record, Struve is 6’11″ with 83 inches of reach.
This is happening, people. There’s going to be raw viciousness and genuine dislike in the air, plus we’re going to send trained fighters who like to kick people really hard into a cage and let ‘em fight. Should be awesome. Did we mention this shindig is supposed to go down in DC? Man, Congress is full of scum — won’t this hurt the sanctioning effort?
