Multiple sites are reporting a welterweight bout between Papy Abedi and James Head has been signed for the UFC’s debut in Sweden. UFC on FUEL TV 2 is scheduled to take place April 14 from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
Abedi (8-1) was a natural selection for the Sweden card, as he grew up there and has called the country home for years. Abedi made his UFC debut in 2011, falling by submission to Thiago Alves.
Head sports a career mark of 7-2 and also dropped his UFC debut at the hands of Nick Ring. The only other fight planned to date for UFC on FUEL TV 2 is DaMarques Johnson vs. John Maguire.
