Two of the light heavyweight division's best will touch down at the O2 World Arena in Berlin, Germany on June 20, as Alexander "The Mauler" Gustafsson takes on Brazil's Glover Teixeira in the main event of UFC Fight Night.
The bout was confirmed Monday by UFC President Dana White.
Looking to get back into the number one contender's spot, Sweden's Gustafsson has won seven of his last nine bouts, with his only losses coming against Jon Jones and Anthony Johnson. Sitting in the number six spot, Teixeira is eager to soar back to the top as well, and a win over the number two-ranked Gustafsson would be the perfect way to do just that.
Tickets for UFC Fight Night Berlin go on sale on April 24.
