12 November, 2012

Las Vegas, Nev. – History will be made when Swedish superstar and No. 1 ranked light heavyweight contender Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson meets No. 3 ranked knockout artist Anthony “Rumble” Johnson on Saturday, Jan. 24 in Stockholm, Sweden to determine the next UFC® light heavyweight title challenger. The bout will take place in front of more than 30,000 fans at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, marking just the second major stadium event in UFC history and the first in Europe.

Then I’m going to go and get the title! My journey back to the top starts now. ”“This fight might be on his home turf, but I’m ready to go over to Sweden and prove that I’m the next in the line for the UFC light heavyweight title,” Johnson said. “I’m not intimidated by fighting in front of Alex’s hometown fans.

This fight will be fucking epic Smile

Rumble could finish Gus early but I think Gus has the advantage the longer the fight goes on.

One of few matchups I'm truly hyped for.
