Lightweights Arman Tsarukyan and Christos Giagos Matched For September 18th UFC Card

Rising lightweights Arman Tsarukyan and Christos Giagos are scheduled to meet at UFC’s September 18th card, per a report from Nolan King and Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie.

The matchup joins a “Fight Night” lineup that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.

Tsarukyan and Giagos are not new names in the UFC, although they are both experiencing upswings in their success lately.

Giagos has picked up two wins since making his return late last year. The 31-year-old made his first appearance in over a year in December, bouncing back from a previous loss with a victory over Carlton Minus.

Giagos secured a submission in his most recent appearance, catching Sean Soriano with a darce choke in May.
