Retired Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight Pat Barry will make his first appearance for the GLORY kickboxing promotion when he throws hands against Zack Mwekassa inside the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado, on Saturday, May 3, 2014.
And for the first time in years, "HD" doesn't have to worry about the ground game.
Barry (15-5-1) is no stranger to kickboxing, having competed on the K-1 circuit for more than two years between 2005 to 2007 before making the jump to mixed martial arts (MMA) in mid-2008, where he finished 8-7, with four of those seven losses coming by way of knockout or technical knockout.
And Mwekassa (10-1) has nine finishes to his name.
GLORY 16: "Denver" will also feature a welterweight world championship title fight between Nieky Holzken and Marc de Bonteand, as well as a one-night, four-man heavyweight contender tournament, which airs live on Spike TV starting at 8 p.m. ET.
Here is the current GLORY 16 fight card and line up:
Tournament Final Bout C: Semifinal Bout A Winner vs. Semifinal Bout B Winner
Welterweight World Title Bout: Nieky Holzken vs. Marc de Bonte
Tournament Reserve Bout: Pat Barry vs. Zack Mwekassa

Any fight fans out there think Barry can find his winning ways now that he's back where he started?
