Barry vs. Jordan, Woodley vs. Shields added to UFC 161

USA TODAY Sports
Two new fights have been added to the UFC 161 card.

Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan and Tyron Woodley vs. Jake Shields were made official by the promotion Wednesday. The Canadian Press first reported the news.

The fan-favorite Barry (8-5) most recently knocked out Shane del Rosario at The Ultimate Fighter finale in December, while Jordan (14-4) defeated Mike Russow via TKO at UFC on FOX 6 in January.

Woodley (11-1) shined in his Octagon debut last month when he knocked out Jay Hieron in just 36 seconds. Shields (27-6-1, 1 NC), back at welterweight after a fight at middleweight, beat Ed Herman at UFC 150, but the result was changed to a no contest after he failed a post-fight drug test due to an undisclosed banned substance.

UFC 161, headlined by Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland for the interim bantamweight title, will take place June 15 at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. No word just yet on where either fight will be placed on the card.
