Arlovski-Barnett Headlines Hamburg Event

Two blockbuster bouts have been announced for the UFC's first visit to Hamburg, Germany on September 3.

In the main event at Barclaycard Arena, two former UFC heavyweight champions collide, as Josh Barnett squares off against Andrei Arlovski.

Despite storied careers that have seen them excel against the elite around the world, Arlovski, winner of six of his last eight, has never faced Barnett, who has defeated Frank Mir and Roy Nelson since his return to the Octagon in 2013. On September 3, the wait is over.

Also officially announced for the event is a light heavyweight battle pitting the No. 5-ranked Ryan Bader against No. 13-ranked Ilir Latifi. Bader has won five of his last six on the way to the top of the division, while Latifi is soaring up the 205-pound ladder thanks to three consecutive wins.
