While it became clear last night at the UFC Fight Night press conference that Alexander Gustafsson will not be fighting in Sweden, the location of the next location also emerged. Kimura.se talked to UFC’s Head of European operations, Gary Cook, revealing that is Malmö Arena is the targeted venue.


After both UFC’s in Stockholm in 2012 and 2013, Zuffa will be hitting a new market in Malmö. Malmö showed huge potential last year as the Superior Challenge promotion filled up the same arena with packed fans hungry for high-level MMA.

Cook continues to say that they are looking at 4 days. April 18 and 25th, and May 10th and 31st. While no date has been selected, they have narrowed down the options.

One fighter to look for is Ilir Latifi, who is from the area. While not headlining, the Swede may be targeted for the card for his popularity in his home town.
