Rick Story (pictured) and Gunnar Nelson, you have some big shoes to fill following Saturday’s UFC 178 extravaganza.

Th welterweights headline this weekend’s UFC event in Stockholm, Sweden. The 170-pounders will have some help because it will be another double-header day for the octagon with an evening show going down inside Halifax Metro Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

That will mark the end of a torrid seven-week span for the UFC that saw 10 events. How many of those fights were of actual significance? We’ll let you debate on that.

UFC Fight Pass streams “UFC Fight Night: Nelson vs. Story,” while Fox Sports 1 airs “UFC Fight Night: MacDonald vs. Saffiedine.”
