Barry vs. Morecraft, Neer vs Ludwig at debut UFC on FX

by Tom Ngo | source:

Just four days removed from hosting their first show on FOX, the UFC announced two bouts that will take place in their debut event on FX. A heavyweight brawl between Pat Barry and Christian Morecraft, as well as a lightweight shootout with Josh Neer and Duane Ludwig were confirmed for the January show.

Barry will be riding a two-fight losing streak. The likeable striker was last seen getting submitted by Stefan Struve at “UFC on Versus 6” in October.

Morecraft has lost two of his three fights under the UFC’s banner, including a knockout loss to Matt Mitrione in his last outing.

Neer has won his last five contests, and Ludwig his last two two.

Very little information regarding the event has been made available. However, the UFC said they will release the city, date and international viewing information shortly.

Ludwig will do his best to stay on the outside with Neer. If it goes to the ground, Neer will make short work of BANG.

 barry/warcraft should be a solid fight if i had to call it, id say barry tears his legs up real bad with kicks and ends up TKOing him.

getting really tired of the endless cycle of trash heavyweights at the lower end of the division those guy have 0 skill and generally are like watching paint dry until somebody gets caught with some backyard style haymaker.

 First fight on that card, or first fight on the televised portion? This fight NEEDS to be shown, it'll be an absolute war from start to finish.
