Andre Arlovski vs. Josh Barnett signed for UFC Germany return

A battle of former UFC heavyweight champions was announced as the main event for UFC’s return to Germany.

Andrei Arlovski (25-12) will face Josh Barnett (34-8) in the main event on 9/3 in Hamburg, Germany at the Barclaycard Arena.

While both are long-term veterans of the sport, they have never faced each other in the past. Arlovski was back in title contention with a six-fight winning streak until losing his last two fights via knockout, a quick loss to new champion Stipe Miocic, and a knockout loss to next title contender Alistair Overeem.
