It appears UFC on FOX 3 is guaranteed to feature at least one highlight-reel finish, as the UFC has announced Pat Barry and Lavar Johnson have been booked to face off at the May 5 event. Known as two of the heavyweight division’s hardest hitters, Barry and Johnson are both coming off of opening round knockouts in January.

UFC on FOX 3 is scheduled for East Rutherford, New Jersey and will feature match-ups including Tony Ferguson-Dennis Hallman and Nate Diaz-Jim Miller.

The May date will mark Johnson’s second fight in the UFC since coming over from Strikeforce. He made his debut last weekend at UFC on FOX 2 where he did the previously unthinkable by rendering Joey Beltran into a puddle of good with a series of stiff shots. The 16-5 Californian has scored stoppages over all of the opponents he’s beaten including fourteen TKOs.

Barry is also no stranger to blasting adversaries into orbit, a fact he put on display two weeks ago against Christian Morecraft. Six of Barry’s seven total victories have involved a strike-based finish.
