Two of the UFC's heaviest-handed big men have agreed to throw down in New Jersey on May 5th at UFC on Fox 3, when Pat Barry will meet Lavar Johnson, according to an announcement on UFC.com this morning:

Get ready for heavyweight fireworks as verbal agreements are in for a showdown between knockout artists Lavar "Big" Johnson and Pat "HD" Barry on the main card of FOX's third event this May 5 in New Jersey

Barry and Johnson are both coming off brutal knockout victories and neither man is prone to going to a decision, so the UFC is likely hoping for fireworks with this booking. Johnson fought only a few days, making his UFC debut in Chicago on the second Fox card and becoming the first man to truly crack the chin of Joey Beltran, knocking him out with vicious uppercuts in the first round. Barry competed just a week before that, turning off Christian Morecraft's lights with a well-placed right hook and some follow-up punches on the ground after staving off a few close submission attempts.

Pat "HD" Barry (7-4)

L Stefan Struve (submission) - UFC on Versus 6
L Cheick Kongo (KO) - UFC on Versus 4
Lavar "Big" Johnson (16-5)
