Unbeatens Meet in Berlin on May 31

Somebody's "0" must go when Barnatt and Strickland collide in Germany...
Fresh off big wins in March, unbeaten middleweight prospects Luke Barnatt and Sean Strickland will meet in an intriguing UFC Fight Night matchup at the O2 World Berlin on Saturday, May 31.

"May 31st, Berlin, Germany, two undefeated middleweights go to war," said England's Barnatt, who stopped Mats Nilsson in London earlier this month. "When I get the knockout and end this young man's dream, at least he can take warmth in the fact he has a stamp on his passport and can enjoy the beautiful city of Berlin. I'm ready."

A week after Barnatt's victory, California's Strickland impressed in his Octagon debut in Dallas, submitting veteran (and Barnatt's TUF 17 castmate) Bubba McDaniel in a single round.

"From what I have seen from Luke, I predict this is going to be a long war between two talented fighters," Said Strickland. "I expect us to both take risks and try to finish the fight. In the end I will come out on top and will remain undefeated."

Fight Night Berlin tickets go on sale to UFC Fight Club members on April 2, with newsletter code holders having the opportunity to purchase tickets on April 3 and a general sale beginning on April 4.
