Big heavyweight bookings continue to pour in, and a pair of former UFC champs meet in the headlining bout of UFC Fight Night in Hamburg.

UFC officials today announced that Andrei Arlovski (25-12 MMA, 14-6 UFC) meets Josh Barnett (34-8 MMA, 6-3 UFC) in the card’s featured contest, the first fight set for the Sept. 3 event at Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany.

Really good fight! Chalk it up as another "I cant believe this fight hasn't happened yet, 2 of the best top 10 heavyweights of the last 15-20 years.

No idea who's going to win this. If its a striking heavy affair Barnett could KO Arlovski but the safe money would be on Arlovski. But obviously if Barnett makes it grappling heavy he will most likely take it.

Depends where they're heads are at as well. Both are fringe top 10 right now but in this division a couple quicks wins can buy one more run at a shot. Im gonna wait until closer to the fight before i pick this one.
