Alexander Gustafsson’s return home was a major hit with Swedish MMA fans, as UFC on FUEL TV: Gustafsson vs. Mousasi sold out in a matter of hours, according to UFC president Dana White. The card takes place April 6 from Stockholm’s Ericsson Globe Arena.
“Stockholm, Sweden sold out in hours!!!!” White posted on Twitter.
The main event features Gustafsson (15-1) taking on former Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi (33-3-2). Gustafsson has been declared the No. 1 contender in the division, but UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is currently tied up with The Ultimate Fighter and a scheduled match vs. Chael Sonnen in April.
Other fights made official include Philip De Fries-Matt Mitrione, Ross Pearson-Ryan Couture, and Mike Easton-Brad Pickett.
