Soa Palelei, Pat Barry will square off at UFC Fight Night 33

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

A heavyweight clash between Soa Palelei and Pat Barry has been scheduled for UFC Fight Night 33, according to UFC officials Friday night.

Palelei was ripped after his "embarrassing" UFC return, a win against Nikita Krylov, by UFC president Dana White, but Palelei said he suffered a "excruciating" rib injury before the fight.

Barry has lost three of his last five fights and was knocked out in the first round by Shawn Jordan at UFC 161 in his last trip to the Octagon.

UFC Fight Night 33 will be held Dec. 7 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Australia. A heavyweight fight between Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva will be the main event.
