- A pair of former heavyweight champions collide this Saturday afternoon at UFC Fight Night 93 from Hamburg, Germany, as Andrei Arlovski meets Josh Barnett. The entire card streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
- Lina Landsberg might not be known at the moment, but if she can do what she says she can, that will all change. Landsberg meets Cris "Cyborg" Justino later this year at UFC Fight Night 95 in the main event from Brazil.
Landsberg has gone 6-1 in her MMA career, while Justin is unbeaten over her last 17 and is the reigning Invicta FC featherweight champion. Like her initial UFC fight, this bout will take place at a catchweight of 140 pounds.
"I love elbows," Lansberg said (thanks to MMAjunkie for the quotes). "They make everybody bleed so much, and I love that. It will be so much fun. She's tough, and she's going to bleed a lot. That's why I do it. I'm going to enjoy it, and we're going to have a good time, me and Cris.
"This fight is absolutely a shortcut to the top, and it's the best way possible. She is beatable. She has beat many good names, but also a lot of names that weren't that good, and she's still human. A lot of people win all the time, but everybody is beatable."
Landsberg has not lost since her MMA debut. UFC Fight Night 95 takes place September 24 from the Nilson Nelson Gymnasium and airs live on FOX Sports 1.
- Former Bellator MMA lightweight title contender Marcin Held is headed to the UFC. The 24-year-old from Poland announced his signing on social media.
Held owns a 22-4 overall record, including 11 wins in 14 Bellator fights. He was bested by then-Bellator champion Will Brooks last year. Brooks also signed with the UFC when his Bellator deal expired.
Of his 22 career wins, 12 have been via submission and four more by knockout. Held is 7-1 over his last eight fights and is a one-time Bellator tournament winner and one-time runner-up.
