Rustam Khabilov vs. Reza Madadi added to UFC Fight Night Hamburg in September

By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

The UFC has announced a new addition to their Sept. 3 Fight Night event in Hamburg, Germany, as lightweights Rustam Khabilov and Reza Madadi will square off on the card.

Khabilov returns for his third fight of 2016 after spending a year on the shelf. The 29-year-old suffered consecutive losses to Benson Henderson and Adriano Martins in 2014 and 2015, respectively, then returned in February almost exactly one year after the Martins fight to defeat Norman Parke by decision. He then added a win over Chris Wade a few months later at UFC Fight Night Rotterdam.

Madadi returned to the UFC last fall after a stint in a Swedish prison on an aggravated burglary conviction. He lost to the aforementioned Parke by decision in his return, but bounced back on the UFC Fight Night Rotterdam card in May with a TKO win over Yan Cabral.

The Sept. 3 event is the first ever for the UFC in the city of Hamburg, and will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Josh Barnett and Andrei Arlovski.
