Zack Mwekessa (left) is not buying the "Hype" and will look to spoil Pat Barry's (right) GLORY debut this weekend in Denver.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight hurter 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, this Saturday night (May 3, 2014) on Spike TV.

And for the first time in years, "HD" doesn't have to worry about the ground game.

Barry 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. His return to the ring actually occurred just last month, resulting in a first-round knockout over Ed Burris under the WKA banner.

Mwekassa (10-1) may be unknown to stateside fans, but the former pugilist has nine violent finishes to his name.

GLORY 16: "Denver" will also feature a welterweight world championship title fight between Karapet Karapetyan and Marc de Bonte, as well as a one-night, four-man heavyweight contender tournament, which airs live on Spike TV starting at 9 p.m. ET.
