Ericsson Globe at night
The UFC has been mulling going to Sweden for a long time, and after hearing about this, they must be wondering why they put this off for so long. They put out a release over the weekend stating that tickets for UFC on Fuel 2, which will take place in the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden (which is awesome, by the way) sold out in three hours.
"People have been telling me how big of a market Sweden was for the UFC and today, the fans went out and proved it," UFC President Dana White said. "I love taking the UFC to new markets. I can’t wait to get to Stockholm in April because we’re going to put on a great event!"
The card will see top Swedish light heavyweight Alexander Gustafsson take on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in the main event, and will feature a variety of other Scandinavian fighters. Here is the current card:
Alexander Gustafsson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
