UFC Fight Night 93: Arlovski vs. Barnett got the green light, following Friday’s weigh-ins in Hamburg, Germany.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has been to Germany several times, but UFC Fight Night 93 marks the promotion’s first foray into Hamburg. They’re going big there with a five-round, non-title-fight main event pitting former UFC heavyweight champions Andrei Arlovski and Josh Barnett against one another.
Neither pushes up against the ceiling of the 265-pound weight class, so it was mostly a foregone conclusion that both men would make weight.
The co-main event features a light heavyweight bout between Alexander Gustafsson and Jan Blachowicz. Gustafsson is trying to course correct after the former title challenger lost three of his four most recent bouts. Blachowicz is coming off of a victory in his most recent fight, and is looking to build some momentum after losing his two previous fights.
