The UFC’s maiden voyage to Berlin has it’s co-main event.

Carmont, currently ranked No. 9, recently suffered his first loss since 2008 when he fell in a unanimous decision to No. 4 Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in Brazil. That ended an 11-fight win streak and dropped Carmont to 22-8.
He’ll have the chance to start anew against Dollaway, who has worked to shed his inconsistent label by winning three of his last four, including a TKO victory over Cezar Ferreira just last weekend at the UFC Fight Night event in Natal Brazil. Dollaway finished the fight in just 39 seconds, making it the fastest win of his seven-year career. Dollaway, who has yet to crack the middleweight rankings, is 14-5.
The May 31 Germany card is just one of two the UFC is producing, with a second coming in Brazil later that evening. It marks the first time in company history they are attempting the feat.
