Alexander Gustafsson is back.

The popular Swedish light heavyweight will meet Jan Blachowicz on Sept. 3 in Hamburg, Germany, the UFC announced Friday.

Gustafsson (16-4) hasn't fought since his October loss to Daniel Cormier at UFC 192, which was his second failed attempt at winning the UFC 205-pound title. In fact, he hasn't won a fight since March 2014.

Blachowicz (19-5), of Poland, is 2-2 in the UFC. He most recently defeated Igor Pokrajac via unanimous decision in April.

Also announced for UFC Fight Night 93, which will mark the promotion's first event in Hamburg, was Brad Pickett vs. Henry Briones. The main event will feature Andrei Arlovski vs. Josh Barnett.
