ufc fight night 86

Four matchups have been announced for the Octagon’s debut in Croatia for UFC Fight Night 86.

Set for April 10 from the Zagreb Arena in Zagreb, Croatia, the card is expected to air on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

While no main event was confirmed, Gabriel Gonzaga will face Ruslan Magomedov, Igor Pokrajac returns to battle Jan Blachowicz, Francis Ngannou welcomes Bojan Mihajlovic and Nicolas Dalby squares off with Bartosz Fabinski.

Gonzaga (17-10) has scored 12 Octagon victories during a couple of runs with the promotion, including a victory over Konstantin Erokhin in December. Magomedov (14-1) is a perfect 3-0 with the UFC and has won nine straight overall.

Pokrajac (25-12) picked up three wins outside the UFC to earn a return for the first time since 2014, while Blachowicz (18-5) has lost his last two. Ngannou (6-1) earned a knockout in December in his debut and will be trying to halt a 10-fight win streak for Mihajlovic (10-3).

Dalby (14-0-1) fought Darren Till to a draw in his last appearance and Fabinski (13-2) has won seven straight, including two with the UFC.

This marks another overseas expansion for the UFC, which has held events in countless countries worldwide.

Heavyweight: Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Ruslan Magomedov

Light Heavyweight: Igor Pokrajac vs. Jan Blachowicz
