UFC Sweden Adds Wisely Vs. Young, Izquierdo Vs. Madadi

via admin.mmaweekly.com

UFC on Fuel 2 is set to go down in Stockholm on April 14th, and the card is now full. The UFC added the last two bouts to the card today, finding a replacement for the injured Akira Corassani and throwing a new lightweight bout on there as well. UFC.com with the news:

The sold-out UFC on FUEL TV fight night in Stockholm, Sweden, has added two fights to its roster. With Akira Corassani sidelined due to injury, midwestern scrapper Eric Wisely will step in for the injured TUF alum to take on Jason Young in what will be a featherweight battle of striking specialists.

Also that night, undefeated lightweight Yoislandy 'Cuba' Izquierdo has verbally agreed to make his first UFC fight one against Stockholm's own Reza 'Mad Dog' Madadi. Both fighters had been scheduled to enter the Octagon earlier in the year - though not against each other - but injury and red tape delayed their debuts.

Verbal agreements are in for both bouts.

Wisely made his UFC debut at UFC on Fox 2, where he was submitted by a Charles Oliveira calf slicer in under two minutes. Young is 0-2 in the UFC, dropping spirited decisions to Dustin Poirier at UFC 131 and Michihiro Omigawa at UFC 138. As stated above, both Izquierdo and Madadi were forced out of earlier debuts and will step into the octagon for the first time in April.
