On Saturday, the UFC will hold its first event in Sweden, the home country of main event fighter Alexander Gustafsson. With wins in four consecutive fights, Gustafsson is looking to take another step toward the light heavyweight title with a win over Brazilian Thiago Silva.
After a failed drug test in January 2011, Silva has been out of action for more than one year. Against Gustafsson, Silva will have the chance to jump right back into the mix as a contender in the 205-pound division.
Once UFC on Fuel TV 2 is live from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, Bleacher Report will provide live results below and in-depth play-by-play on the following pages of this slideshow.
