An interesting welterweight bout appears to be shaping up for the UFC on Fuel 2 card in Stockholm, Sweden on April 14th. MMAnytt.se reports that Siyar Bahadurzada will make his long-awaited promotional debut against Paulo Thiago in a welterweight bout that will likely be featured on the main card:

Brazilian Paulo Thiago is going to come to Sweden on April 14 and show up at the Globe Arena in Stockholm to participate in the UFC on Fuel TV 2 when he meets Siyar Bahadurzada, which MMAnytt has been able to confirm during the evening.

Both Thiago and Bahadurzada were supposed to be fighting different opponents on next weekend's UFC 142 card in Rio, but injuries sidelined both men, and they'll now face each other in Sweden. Thiago was a huge fan-favorite on the last Rio card in August, where he won a unanimous decision over David Mitchell. Bahadurzada, who trains in Amsterdam at Golden Glory, was most recently seen by fans on the 14th season of The Ultimate Fighter where he was a striking coach on Jason Miller's team, but he hasn't seen actual fight action since last May when he won the Ultimate Glory welterweight GP.
