The UFC is wasting no time in lining up stars for their return to Stockholm. Less than an hour after announcing their January 24 show would showcase a light heavyweight top contender tilt between Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Johnson, it was confirmed Dan Henderson (pictured) will move back to the middleweight division and co-headline the shindig with Gegard Mousasi.
Both veterans will be looking to bounce back from losses. Henderson only has two wins in six outings since November 2011, both coming against former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
The 44-year-old hasn’t competed at middleweight since losing to Jake Shields for the Strikeforce title in April 2010.
Mousasi has alternated between wins and losses over his past four contests. “The Dreamcatcher” was most recently submitted by Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in September.
Tele2 Arena in Sweden hosts the festivities.
FOX will broadcast the main card live in America starting at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
Here is the card’s current roster:
Dan Henderson vs. Gegard Mousasi
Anthony Johnson vs. Alexander Gustafsson
