On Wednesday night, the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced Frank Mir (pictured) will welcome Josh Barnett back to the big leagues at UFC 164.
Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin hosts the August 31 festivities.
Mir will be looking to snap his two-fight skid. The former two-time UFC heavyweight champion had rattled off three straight wins prior to getting TKO’d by then-champ Junior dos Santos at UFC 146 and most recently out pointed for a decision defeat to Daniel Cormier.
Barnett, meanwhile, just inked his contract to re-join the UFC after an 11-year hiatus. “The Warmaster” has won nine of his past 10 scraps, with his lone blemish during that run coming in the finals of Strikeforce’s Heavyweight Grand Prix to Cormier.
Here is the card’s current roster:
Ben Rothwell vs. Brandon Vera
Chad Mendes vs. Clay Guida
Dustin Poirier vs. Erik Koch
Frank Mir vs. Josh Barnett
