Barry(5-2) hasn’t fought since UFC 115, June, when the accomplished kickboxer was submitted by Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, with a third round, rear-naked-choke. Prior to that, at UFC 104 last October, Barry stopped Antoni Hardonk in round two.
Beltran (12-4) is coming off his first Octagon loss in September, losing by unanimous decision to Matt Mitrione, after earning back-to-back victories over Rolles Gracie and Tim Hague earlier in 2010.
