Alexander Gustafsson vs. Rogerio Nogueira Set for UFC Sweden Main Event

Stockholm's own light heavyweight Alexander Gustfasson will take on Brazilian veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in the main event of UFC Sweden, the UFC announced Tuesday.

"UFC Sweden" (also known as UFC on FUEL TV 2), the promotion's debut in Sweden, takes place Saturday, April 14 at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm.

"Sweden has been on our radar for a long time and on April 14, we're excited to finally bring the UFC to Stockholm," UFC President Dana White stated Tuesday. "We're putting together a great card for the Swedish fans. I can't wait to get there in April!"

Gustafsson (13-1) has been on a tear, finishing all four of his opponents in his last four UFC fights. Last month at UFC 141, Gustafsson earned the biggest win of his career, a first-round TKO over veteran Vladimir Matyushenko. Nogueira (20-5) last month snapped a two-fight losing streak by stopping former champ Tito Ortiz at UFC 140 in Canada.

Since this is not a pay-per-view card, Gustafsson vs. Nogueira will be a three-round fight.
