Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan set for UFC 161 in Winnipeg

USA TODAY Sports

UFC 161 will be the home of an explosive heavyweight bout.

The Canadian Prairies are going to get their first UFC card in June, and it just keeps getting better and better. On top of a bantamweight title fight and two light heavyweight wars, they're also going to get a battle between formidable heavyweight strikers with crowd favorite Pat Barry meeting ex-Strikeforce fighter Shawn Jordan. Neil Davidson of The Canadian Press first reported the bout.

Barry (8-5, 5-5 UFC) is coming off a thunderous knockout of Shane del Rosario at the Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale, while Jordan (14-4) has acquitted himself well in the UFC thus far with a 2-1 record. His last bout was a second-round TKO win over Mike Russow at UFC on Fox 6 in January.

The bout is expected to take place on the undercard, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if it was the featured bout on FX or even the opening bout on the pay per view. The show will be headlined, as mentioned above, by a UFC interim bantamweight title fight between Renan Barao and former WEC champ Eddie Wineland.
