For just the fifth time in history, the UFC returns to Germany with a great night of fights headlined by two heavyweight legends.
On September 3rd, the UFC will travel to Hamburg, Germany for the first time in history. The leading MMA promotion has held four events in Germany before. Two in Berlin, one in Cologne, and one in Oberhausen.
The UFC: Hamburg card is headlined by two heavyweight legends coming off defeats. Former champion Andrei Arlovski will look to snap a two-fight losing skid when he takes on submission specialist Josh Barnett. These two fighters both began their careers in the 90’s and have an astonishing 90 professional fights between them.
In the co-main event, former title-challenger Alexander Gustafsson hopes to make Swedish gambling news by defeating Polish striker Jan Blachowicz. The winner gets one step closer to a shot at the light-heavyweight championship.
