Nico Musoke (13-4-1) will finally make his return to the cage, as the Stockholm-based fighter has been booked for the upcoming UFC in Stockholm card going down at Globen Arena on May 28th.
The UFC announced that the welterweight will face Bojan Velickovic (14-4) on the 5th UFC event in Sweden.
Musoke hasn’t been the cage since over 30,000 fans crowded into the Tele2 arena back in January of 2015 when he lost a split decision to Albert Tumenov. “I am healthy, free from injuries. I declared this with the UFC a few months ago.” says Musoke to MMAViking.com about his eagerness to get a fight booked.
The Swede that puts time between Pancrase Gym, Prana Jiu JItsu, and Rinkeby Muay Thai first stepped into the Octagon back in October of 2013, where on short notice he submitted UFC veteran Alessio Sakara in the first round.
The welterweight has since racked up two wins and two losses in the Octagon, with his only loses against top competition Kelvin Gastelum and the aforementioned Tumenov. The 30 year holds wins over Viscardi Andrade and Alexander Yakovlev.
“Serbian Steel” is 26 years old and has one win, one loss, and one draw in the Octagon. Most recently, Velickovic had a split decision loss at UFC on Fox 22 to Sultan Alev. He has a 14 win and 4 loss overall record.
