Emil Weber Meek Signs With UFC, Will Fight Jessin Ayari In September

Fresh off a finish of Rousimar Palhares, Emil Weber Meek has signed with the UFC and will fight in September when the Octagon heads to Hamburg, Germany.

Meek (8-2-1) will take on Jessin Ayari at the September 3 card.

Last month, the 27-year-old Meek knocked out Palhares at Venator FC 3 in just 45 seconds. He has finished all eight of his opponents, including seven via knockout.

Ayari (15-3) will also be making his Octagon debut, as the 24-year-old competes in his home country. He recently defeated former UFC veteran Mickael Lebout and has won six straight.

The card features a headline bout between Josh Barnett and Andrei Arlovski, and airs entirely on UFC Fight Pass.
