TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28
London, UK – Three thrilling new fights have been added to the highly anticipated UFC FIGHT NIGHT™: GUSTAFSSON vs. JOHNSON, due to take place on January 24 at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
Bulgaria’s 12-1 Stanislav ‘Stucky‘ Nedkov will face the Ukraine’s 17-4 Nikita ‘Al Capone’ Krylov in a light heavyweight bout, adding another fantastic match up to this must-see event. Nedkov will be eager to make his return to the Octagon and his fans keen to see him again after his last fight at Wembley in February 2013 where he lost to Tom Watson but earned Fight of the Night.
Riding a nine fight winning streak, 9-1 Russian heavyweight Konstantin Erokhin will make his UFC debut in Stockholm against the Czech Republic’s Viktor Pesta. Erkhin is known for powerful boxing and is well regarded in Russia for hand-to-hand combat, a great match for Pesta who comes to the bout on a 9-1 record four of which were TKO.
Brazil’s 12-1 Yan Cabral will face 22-5 Mairbek ‘Beckan’ Taisumov from Russia in a Lightweight bout. Both fighters head to Stockholm having fought and won last month. Taisumov last fought and won in Stockholm on October 4 against Marcen Bandel while Cabral beat Naoyuki Kotani at UFC 179 on 25 October.
