1222

The UFC may finally make its return to Sweden. MMA journalist Farah Hannoun has reported that she is “hearing that the UFC is most likely headed to Stockholm, Sweden ?? on June 1st.”

Gustafsson tried to get on the UFC London card in March, and would be a leading candidate to headline a June card

The UFC has not been to Sweden since Alexander Gustafsson (18-4) stepped into a UFC octagon and finished Brazilian vet Glover Teixeira (26-6) in the 5th round proposing to his girlfriend in the octagon in May of 2017.

The UFC first put on an event in Stockholm back in April of 2012, and has been back in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2017. While the UFC has considered events in Finland and Denmark, Sweden has been the host to every Nordic event so far.
