Surging UFC light heavyweight star Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson will headline this event in his native Sweden for the second consecutive year, taking on red-hot former STRIKEFORCE® light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi of The Netherlands. The five-round main event will pit two of the sport’s best young strikers against one another with the winner moving closer to a date with the UFC light heavyweight champion.
Gustafsson recently defeated former UFC champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in his last bout. Before his collision with Shogun, the 26-year-old defeated Thiago Silva in front of a record crowd at the Ericsson Globe Arena last April.
Meanwhile, Mousasi, 28, is riding back-to-back victories, including a submission win over Mike Kyle earlier this month.
