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

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

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.
