Sobotta Returns to Face Unbeaten Pawlak

Fight Night Berlin tickets go on sale to UFC Fight Club members on April 2, with newsletter code holders having the opportunity to purchase tickets on April 3 and a general sale beginning on April 4.
After a nearly four year absence, Peter Sobotta will make his return to the Octagon on May 31, and as a bonus he'll get to do it in his home country of Germany, as he meets unbeaten newcomer Pawel Pawlak in a UFC Fight Night bout at the O2 World Berlin.

“Me getting the opportunity to fight in Berlin is history repeating itself," said Sobotta, who is 5-0-1 since a UFC 122 loss to Amir Sadollah in November of 2010. "I signed my first UFC contract five years ago. But this time so much is different. Instead of a journey into the unknown I will be navigating well-known waters this time. Before my debut five years ago there was a lot of uncertainty, but this time I am looking forward to it, I will be ready and I am determined to finally get that first win.”

Poland's Pawlak, who has ended nine of his ten wins by knockout or submission, is equally excited for his bout with Sobotta.

"I can't wait for my UFC debut fight," said the 25-year-old from Lodz. "I'm already training hard to show that I'm the right person to fight amongst the very best fighters in the world. I hope that fighting Peter will be just first step in my long UFC journey. I know a lot about Sobotta; he is very good on the ground, but I'm not afraid at all. I think I am the better fighter and I will prove that on May 31st. I'm happy that the fight will take place in Berlin, so close to Poland. I know a lot of fans will come to support me and I'll do everything to show them great MMA."
