The UFC recently announced that they’ll be taking their show to Sweden for the first time this coming February and today revealed a bevy of match ups for the fight card, which will be aired on FUEL TV.
The main event will see young Swedish fighter Alexander Gustafsson taking on seasoned competitor Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Having just knocked off one veteran in Vladimir Matyushenko at UFC 141 last month to extend his current winning streak to four in a row, the 24-year-old is quickly establishing himself as a force in the light heavyweight division. Lil’ Nog recently broke a two-fight losing streak by taking out Tito Ortiz with a first-round TKO.
UFC Sweden has also gotten the addition of two welterweight contests between UFC debutant Siyar Bahadurzada and Paulo Thiago, as well as DaMarques Johnson and John Maguire. Match ups between Cyrille Diabate and Jörgen Kruth, Francis Carmont and Magnus Cedenblad were also announced for the card.
UFC Sweden (or UFC on FUEL TV 2) will go down on February 15 at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden and the full lineup currently looks like this:
Alexander Gustafsson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Siyar Bahadurzada vs. Paulo Thiago
DaMarques Johnson vs. John Maguire
Jörgen Kruth vs. Cyrille Diabate
Magnus Cedenblad vs. Francis Carmont
