The UFC’s attempt at global domination continued today with the company’s first card in Sweden – UFC on Fuel 2. The show featured a number of popular fighters from the region including headliner Alexander Gustafsson, a rising light heavyweight contender who faced heavy-handed Brazilian Thiago Silva in the main event.
Gustafssson looked sharp, weathering a few stiff shots from Silva to ultimately take home the decision win due to his footwork and precise striking. The 25-year old is now 14-1 in his career and likely a win away from earning a title-shot.
Siver, Pickett, and Stann all looked good, picking up victories, while Thiago was rendered into a puddle of goo by debuting powerhouse Siyar Bahadurzada.
