A three-round middleweight bout between Joe Pyfer and Marc-Andre Barriault has been added to UFC 303: McGregor vs Chandler. The highly anticipated MMA event airs live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, June 29.

Barriault (16-7) also looks to return to winning ways. The 34-year-old Canadian suffered the defeat via split decision against Chris Curtis in January, after winning a pair of fights last year.

The promotion featured the Pyfer vs Barriault showdown on the event page on its website, making it official.
