Peter “Slippery Pete” Barrett (11-3 MMA, 1-0 DWCS 0-0 UFC)

Featherweight (145lbs): 0-0 (UFC), Making his Debut on August 8th

Lightweight (155lbs): 1-0 (DWCS)

Peter Barret got an invitation to the UFC after his Contender Series fight last year against Sang Hoon Yoo. This fight was in the lightweight division, where Barret was able to pull out an impressive dominating unanimous decision victory. But for his debut in the octagon at UFC Vegas 6, Peter Barrett will be dropping down to the featherweight weight class.

Barrett hasn’t had a lot of fights at featherweight; the majority of his professional fights have been at lightweight. His last fight at 145lbs was about 3 years ago. Peter stands at 5’9″ and has a 73″ reach. Barrett is almost 34 years old and therefore is a fighter to watch on the scale and on fight night to see how his body responds to the cut.
