The UFC octagon heads to the Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany for this weekend’s instalment of action. Former heavyweight champions Andrei Arlovski and Josh Barnett collide in the main event, with all the chips of a potential heavyweight title fight in play. The co-main event features Alexander Gustafsson vs. Jan Blachowicz. ‘The Mauler’ will look to get back on track after the firs back-to-back losses of his professional career.
The Polish Blachowicz hopes to play spoiler in this war of European light-heavyweights. Ilir Latifi and Ryan Bader will throw down, also at 205 pounds, to see if ‘Darth’ can remain top 10, or if ‘Rocky’ will knock him down a few pegs.
Opening the main card we have an intriguing lightweight scrap between Nick Hein and Tae Hyun Bang. The traditional weigh-ins show streams at 3 PM GMT (that’s 10 AM ET). The early weigh-ins just got done. Here’s the results, and tune in for the live show later today!
