The UFC's tallest heavyweight has a date with the promotion's shortest one.

UFC officials today announced that verbal agreements are in place for 6-foot-11 Stefan Struve (21-5 MMA, 5-3 UFC) to meet 5-foot-11 Pat Barry (6-3 MMA, 3-3 UFC) at UFC on Versus 6.

UFC on Versus 6 takes place Oct. 1 at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. The evening's main card airs on Versus.

Struve vs. Barry likely will be part of the broadcast.

I see either a Corey Hill style leg break happening in this match, or Pat just getting slept by the reach of giant ass Struve.

Edit: Speaking of tallest vs. shortest....


never gets old!

This is tough. Part of me believes Barry is going to knock him out but there's always that massive reach and height difference.

This. I was thinking Barry could earn the TKO with leg kicks until I saw the size difference in the image above. Not I'm not so sure.

Struve needs to get it to the ground and work the sub.

Otherwise I think Barry can get inside and just land that one punch to rock and finish Struve.

This is a badass fight. Struves got the reach and probably a better ground game along with a much more extensive record. Yet I really don't want to pick against Barry.

This is a tough one to puck, leaning towards Struve by sub. If mirko can RNC berry then struve mos def can

I'm having a tough time picking a winner here too. First gut feeling was Barry by vicious ko. I could see Struve using that massive reach to fend off Barry also. I just don't know.

Or struve by pulling guard and subbing barry out

Barry's going to lose a lot of punching power by having to punch 'up'. His best bet is to kick the sh*t out of Struve's legs and hope he falls.

I was thinking the same. However, Roy Nelson didn't seem to lose much power when he went for the Shoryuken on Struve. The Skyscraper is built like a Giraffe, and I don't think his frail frame stops at his chin. Also, for someone who is damn near 7 feet tall, Struve doesn't seem to realize his reach advantage. He can't keep someone on the end of his range for the life of him.

Just for the record: In my opinion, Struve lost to Paul Buentello. The judges didn't agree, but I think Struve's four missing teeth was pretty good evidence of being on the losing end of that fight.
