By Tristen Critchfield Mar 27, 2018

The Ultimate Fighting Championship will make its second trip to Hamburg, Germany, for a Fight Night event on July 22.

The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the news on Tuesday. The event takes place at Barclaycard Arena and will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass. While no bouts were officially announced, a release confirmed that German fighters Jarjis Danho, Jessin Ayari and Peter Sobotta could be targeted for the event.

The Octagon previously touched down in Hamburg for UFC Fight Night 93 in September 2016. In that event, Josh Barnett submitted Andrei Arlovski with a third-round rear-naked choke in the evening’s headliner, while Alexander Gustafsson and Ryan Bader scored victories on the main card.

“Our German fans have proven, time and time again, that MMA is a sport they love,” said UFC vice president of international and content David Shaw. “After such a successful event in 2016 we look forward to revisiting a city that welcomed us, and our athletes, in 2016 and we intend to deliver an even bigger and better event for the fans on July 22.”
