This event will be the second that UFC event has hosted in Sweden, following UFC on Fuel TV: Gustafsson vs. Silva which took place in 2012, and was the fastest selling European event in UFC history, selling out in only three hours.
The event is expected to be headlined by top light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson and former Dream Middleweight and Light Heavyweight Champion and former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion, and promotional newcomer Gegard Mousasi.
A bout between Robbie Peralta and Akira Corassani, previously linked to UFC 156, was moved to this event. Corassani had been sidelined with sickness for a brief period of time leading up to and following UFC 156.
