UFC Fight Night: Nelson vs. Story fight card

A look at the October 4th UFC Fight Night in Sweden, where welterweights Rick Story and Gunnar Nelson meet in the main event.

The UFC's latest visit to Sweden does not involve Alexander Gustafsson, who is injured and was otherwise going to fight in Las Vegas against Jon Jones. Instead, Iceland's Gunnar Nelson and the USA's Rick Story both head into this one making their first ever appearances in a UFC main event. Co-headlining this Stockholm card are former featherweight title challenger Chan Sung Jung and local favorite Akira Corassani.

Rounding out the main card is Niklas Backstrom, who is not related to the 28 or so Niklas Backstroms playing in the NHL, against England's Mike Wilkinson, as well as the incomparable Ilir Latifi versus the debuting Jan Blachowicz.
