REPORT: Danny Henry vs. Peter Barrett targeted for UFC Lincoln

The Cornhusker State looks to be getting a featherweight matchup at the end of april.

A matchup between Peter Barrett and Danny Henry is being targeted for UFC on ESPN+ 31, sources tell The Scrap. The event takes place on April 25 at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb. and will be headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Anthony Smith and Glover Teixeira.

Henry is looking to bounce back into the win column after losing via submission to Dan Ige at UFC on ESPN+ 5 in March 2019. “The Hatchet” began his Octagon career with wins over Daniel Teymur and Hakeem Dawodu, and brings a 12-3 record to the upcoming bout.

Barrett is set to make his Octagon debut at next month’s event as he also earned a contract competing on the 2019 season of the Contender Series. “Slippery Pete” outlasted the previously unbeaten Sang Hoon Yoo to pick up a unanimous decision. The 33-year-old Massachusetts native will return to the featherweight division for the first time since November 2017 when he suffered a third-round submission loss to TJ Brown at Cage Titans 36. It will be the 15th professional appearance for Barrett.
