Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is making its return to Stockholm, Sweden, for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 109 mixed martial arts (MMA) event inside Ericsson Globe Arena on Sat., May 28, 2017.
The action is split between FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Leading the charge will be former light heavyweight No. 1 contenders Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira, who share a common opponent — and a five-round unanimous decision loss — to deposed 205-pound kingpin Jon Jones.
One of these power-punching headliners will exit the division title race when the dust settles and the smoke clears on fight night (more on that here).
Elsewhere on the card, Misha Cirkunov returns to the Octagon for a light heavyweight slugfest opposite Volkan Oezdemir, while Ben Saunders keeps plugging along at 170-pounds when he tangles with longtime veteran Peter Sobotta.
