Pat Barry vs. Gilbert Yvel in works for UFC 115

It appears as though fans of affable heavyweight Pat Barry will get a chance to see the New Orleans native step back into the Octagon against fellow kickboxer Gilbert Yvel this June at UFC 115 in Vancouver.

The news was reported by the Las Vegas Sun which confirmed both camps are close to signing paperwork required to make the bout official.

Barry was most recently seen scoring an emotional win over Antoni Hardonk at UFC 104 last October which landed him both “Fight of the Night” and “Knockout of the Night” honors, while Yvel will be looking to get back on the winning track inside the iconic eight-sided cage after succumbing to Junior dos Santos’ strikes at UFC 108.

Both men are known for their striking as evidenced by all five of Barry’s wins coming by way of TKO and thirty-one of Yvel’s thirty-six wins being procured in the same manner.
