Verbal agreements made for Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan at undetermined May event

USA TODAY Sports

Two UFC heavyweights with KO power have verbally agreed to fight each other, as Pat Barry takes on Shawn Jordan at a yet-to-be determined May event.

Heavyweights are set to collide this May, as Pat Barry fights Shawn Jordan at a May UFC event TBD. Bleacher Report's Damon Martin reported the news via Twitter late last night:

Barry (8-5 MMA, 4-5 UFC) is coming off a spectacular KO win over Shane del Rosario in December on the TUF 16 Finale. While he's inconsistent in the ring as far as results -- Barry has yet to win consecutive UFC fights -- he is consistently one of the most exciting HWs in the division.

Jordan (14-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) rallied from a poor first round against Mike Russow to earn a TKO win over the hammerfist god at UFC on FOX 6 in Chicago. His previous UFC fights came against Cheick Kongo (loss) and Oli Thompson (win).

The only two confirmed May events are UFC on FX 8 in Brazil, and UFC 160 in Las Vegas. If I had to guess, I'd say the Vegas card would be the landing place for this matchup, and could imply another heavyweight-centric PPV similar to UFC 146 last May.
