On Tuesday, it was announced a light heavyweight scrap between former top contenders Alexander Gustafsson (pictured) and Glover Teixeira will headline UFC Fight Night Stockholm.

The May 28 event takes place inside Ericsson Globe in Stockholm. Fox Sports 1 will broadcast the main card live in America.

Gustafsson collected a much needed win in September’s unanimous decision over Jan Blachowicz. “The Mauler” had dropped three out of four fights, including two straight, prior to beating Blachowicz.

Teixeir, meanwhile, is victorious in four of his past five bouts. He rebounded nicely from August’s knockout loss to Anthony Johnson by besting Jared Cannonier via decision earlier this month.

Here is the card’s current lineup:

Jack Hermansson vs. Alex Nicholson

Christian Colombo vs. Damian Grabowski

Magnus Cedenblad vs. Chris Camozzi

Glover Teixeira vs. Alexander Gustafsson
