Yvel made a highly anticipated debut in January against Junior Dos Santos, but he fell short. Meanwhile, Pat Barry is coming off an impressive victory over Antoni Hardonk his last time out. This bout is an important one for both these guys as Yvel wants to establish himself in the UFC and Barry wants to move up the ranks. Yvel is a worthy opponent as they two of these guys have some of the best striking skills in the UFC heavyweight division.
UFC 115 is expected to take place June 12 and be headlined by a match between Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz.
