This Saturday, April 5, Sweden warmly welcomes the Octagon back to the Ericsson Globe Arena for the UFC's ninth installment of its Fuel TV series. 

UFC on Fuel TV 9 will feature a light heavyweight contest between Gegard Mousasi and Ilir Latifi in the evening's main event.

This scrap is a late replacement for a matchup between Mousasi and No. 2 contender Alexander Gustafsson, the latter of which was removed from the fight due to a cut over his left eye.

In the evening's co-main event, Ultimate Fighter winner Ross Pearson welcomes Ryan Couture, son of Randy, into the Octagon.

The action promises to be electric, but if you don't know how to tune in, seeing the fights could prove to be quite tricky. Due to the time difference between Stockholm and the U.S.A., there is a substantial time difference between this card and most other UFC offerings.


Facebook Prelims:

Fans who do not have FUEL TV will still have a healthy serving of UFC at their disposal, as the official UFC Facebook page will be streaming seven fights from the preliminary card.

  • Reza Medadi vs. Michael Johnson

Once the main card rolls around, it's time to put down the laptop and turn on your big screen. At 2:00 p.m. the FUEL TV portion will begin. There, you'll see the following matchups:
