Alexander Gustafsson vs Thiago Silva staredown pic from UFC on FUEL TV 2 press conference in Sweden

Alexander Gustafsson (L) and Thiago Silva face off in advance on UFC on FUEL TV 2 this Saturday night in Sweden.

The UFC on FUEL TV 2 pre-fight press conference went down earlier today for "Gustafsson vs. Silva," the upcoming network television event booked for this Saturday night (April 14, 2012) live from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

If you missed any or all of today's presser, you can watch the full video replay here.

Leading the charge will be Sweden's own Alexander Gustafsson, who will try to inch his way closer to a Light Heavyweight title shot by disposing of fellow 205-pound thrasher Thiago Silva, who returns from a lengthy steroid suspension to get himself back "in the mix."

Yes, that's Silva, sporting his trademark shades in the photo above.

Also going to war overseas is Brian Stann, as he takes on Italian boxer Alessio Sakara. Their staredown, as well as a surprise smooch from one of the other competitors, after the jump.
