Ryan Bader vs Ilir Latifi on tap for UFC Fight Night event on Sept. 3 in Germany

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight contender Ryan Bader will try to get back on his horse -- against a guy on a horse -- when he fights Ilir Latifi at the upcoming UFC "Fight Night" event inside Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany, on Sept. 3, 2016.

From the man himself:

Broadcast plans have yet to be revealed.

Bader (20-5) had his bell rung by Anthony Johnson at the UFC on FOX 18 event last January. Falling to "Rumble" cost him a five-fight winning streak, as well as a place among the top 205-pound title contenders. Latifi (12-4, 1 NC), meanwhile, captured three straight with two thunderous knockouts.

Fun fight ... who ya' got?

No other fights have been announced for the promotion's debut in Hamburg; however, you can expect that to change sooner, rather than later.
