The UFC will return to Stockholm, Sweden on May 28, and the promotion announced a trio of fights for the event.

Headlined by top light heavyweights Alex Gustafsson vs. Glover Teixeira at the Ericsson Globe arena, UFC Fight Night: Stockholm will also feature Jack Hermansson vs. Alex Nicholson, Magnus Cedenblad vs. Chris Camozzi, and Damian Grabowski vs. Christian Colombo.

Born in Sweden, Hermansson (14-3) looks to bounce back from his first UFC loss, a submission defeat to Cezar Ferreira that snapped a nine-fight winning streak. Nicholson (7-3), who has competed as a heavyweight before in his MMA career, is 1-1 since returning to the middleweight division.

Cedenblad (14-5), another Swedish talent added to the card, looks to improve to 5-2 under the UFC banner after suffering his first loss in more than four years against Jack Marshman. Camozzi (24-12) desperately needs a win after going 3-3 since re-signing with the UFC in 2015.

Polish heavyweight Grabowski (20-4) is also in a must-win situation as he enters the Stockholm event followed by a pair of first-round knockout losses in his two Octagon appearances. Colombo (8-2-1) also looks for his first UFC win after going 0-1-1 in 2016.
