UFC Alexander Gustafsson

After a brief visit from the pesky injury bug, the lineup for the UFC’s return to FUEL TV is once again set. Although Antonio Rogerio Nogueira was abruptly forced to exit stage left, the good news for fans is that the organization has opted to showcase six fights on the main card.

Thiago Silva replaces Little Nog and will now headline the show opposite Alexander Gustafsson (Pictured). A middleweight tussle with Brian Stann and Alessio Sakara serves as the night’s co-main attraction.

Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden hosts the April 14th festivities. FUEL TV will broadcast the show live in North America at 3PM ET/12PM PT.

Although an official announcement has yet to be made, the UFC’s Facebook page is expected to provide a live stream of the card’s preliminary action.
