UFC Fight Night 93 Gains Lightweights Khabilov, Madadi


A pair of veteran lightweights will square off this September in Germany, as Rustam Khabilov meets Reza Madadi at UFC Fight Night 93.

Khabilov (19-3) has scored back-to-back decision victories over Norman Parke and Chris Wade to improve his Octagon mark to 5-2. The Dagestan fighter won his first three UFC fights before a loss to former champion Benson Henderson.

Madadi (14-4) made a triumphant return after an extended hiatus due to outside-the-Octagon issues last month, defeating Yan Cabral to improve to 3-2 with the UFC.

UFC Fight Night 93 takes place September 3 from Hamburg, Germany. The entire card, including a main event between Josh Barnett and Andrei Arlovski, streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
