A key heavyweight tilt between former UFC champions Andrei Arlovski and Josh Barnett will headline ‘UFC Hamburg’ this September in Germany.
UFC officials made the announcement earlier today.
Andrei Arlovski will be looking to snap a two-fight losing skid when he meets Barnett in Germany. “The Pit Bull” is coming off back-to-back TKO losses which he suffered to current champ Stipe Miocic and number one contender Alistair Overeem. Prior to the setbacks, Arlovski had put together an impressive six-fight win streak, which included three knockout victories.
Meanwhile, Josh Barnett has gone 2-2 over his last four fights. “The Warmaster” most recently saw action in January, where he suffered a submission loss to Ben Rothwell. Prior to the loss, Barnett was coming off a decision victory over heavyweight slugger Roy Nelson.
Who do you think will emerge victorious in this clash of veteran heavyweights? Sound off PENN Nation!
