Tickets on Sale Saturday, Feb. 9
The Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) returns to Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday, April 6 for UFC® STOCKHOLM 2013: GUSTAFSSON vs. MOUSASI. Rising Swedish light heavyweight Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson will headline the five-round main event, taking on former STRIKEFORCE® light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi, of the Netherlands, on FUEL TV.
 
This will mark the UFC’s second trip to Sweden. History was made last April during UFC® Sweden, also headlined by Gustafsson, selling out in less than three hours and breaking Ericsson Globe Arena’s attendance record for sporting events.
 
Gustafsson (15-1) has only been defeated once in his 16-fight career. Currently on a six-fight win streak, Gustafsson recently triumphed over the accomplished Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Thiago Silva. Mousasi (33-3-2) also unbeaten in his last six fights, holds notable wins over Hector Lombard and has been one of the most dominant light heavyweights outside the UFC. On April 6, two of the sport’s best strikers will square off in a match-up with title implications on the division.
 
The highly anticipated event will also feature Sweden native Akira Corassani taking on 145-pound prospect Robbie Peralta. Corassani (10-3, 1 NC)  a veteran of The Ultimate Fighter®  , made his long-awaited UFC debut with a split decision victory over Andy Ogle last September and has finished four of 10 victories. Peralta (16-3, 1 NC) is on a 10-fight unbeaten streak and coming off a 24-second knockout of Jason Young.
 
A welterweight must-win battle will also take place between Swedish up-and-comers Papy Abedi (8-2) and Besam Yousef (6-1), both of whom are looking for their first Octagon® victory this April.
