UFC Returns to Germany for Fight Night Card in Hamburg on Sept. 3

By Tristen Critchfield May 7, 2016
The Ultimate Fighting Championship will return to Germany on Sept. 3 when the Octagon touches down in Hamburg.

The promotion announced the Fight Night event on Saturday ahead of weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night Rotterdam. The card will take place at the Barclayard Arena; a headliner and broadcast plans were not revealed. Hamburg is Germany’s second largest city next to Berlin with a population of approximately 1.7 million.

2016 marks the third consecutive year that the UFC will hold an event in Germany, although this will be the Las Vegas-based promotion’s first visit to Hamburg. The UFC has visited the country four times overall, holding cards in Berlin (twice), Cologne and Oberhausen.

Most recently, UFC Fight Night “Jedrzejczyk vs. Penne” took place at the O2 World in Berlin last June and saw Joanna Jedrzejczyk defend her strawweight title with a third-round technical knockout of Jessica Penne in the main event.
