The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced today that it will host an event in Hamburg, Germany on Sept. 3. The “Fight Night” event will take place at the 16,000-seat Barclaycard Arena.
The announcement was made prior to the UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs. Arlovski weigh-in in Rotterdam. It will be the fifth time the UFC has hosted a show in Germany. The fight promotion first traveled to Germany in 2009 with UFC 99. The Sept. 3 fight card will be the first time the organization has hosted an event in Hamburg.
