The UFC will return to Sweden in April with UFC on Fuel TV 9, which is headlined by a light heavyweight fight between Alexander Gustafsson and Gegard Mousasi.

On Thursday, another potential main-card bout was added to the fight card in the form of a bantamweight matchup between Brad Pickett and Mike Easton.

Though both fighters are coming off losses, Pickett and Easton are widely considered Top-10 bantamweights and will have a chance to return to 135-pound title contention against one another at UFC on Fuel TV 9.

At UFC 155, Pickett had a two-fight winning streak ended by a close-decision loss to Eddie Wineland. Likewise, Easton fell short on the scorecards in his most recent outing against Raphael Assuncao, suffering his first loss inside the Octagon.

UFC on Fuel TV 9 will be held at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on April 6.

With the addition of the 135-pound bout between Pickett and Easton, here is an up-to-date listing of fights expected to take place at UFC on Fuel TV 9:

  • Alexander Gustafsson vs. Gegard Mousasi
  • Mike Easton vs. Brad Pickett
  • Marcus Brimage vs. Conor McGregor
