UFC Fight Night that is to take place September 4 in Stockholm got the headlining match with Gunnar Nelson and Rick Story.

After defeating Zak Cummings in Dublin, Gunnar Nelson will seek to continue his winning streak in a fight against Rick Story. Nelson has four victories in UFC and a score of 13 wins and 1 draw. That fight happened at the beginning of his career and ever since then he has not lost a match. In July Rick Story defeated Leonard Mafra and has a score of 17 wins and 8 losses.

"To headline a card in Sweden is huge for me," said Nelson.  "They are our neighbors and one of my favorite fighters is, of course, from Sweden (Gustafsson). They love my kind of style of fighting, and I am of course, Scandinavian, so we have a good connection. So overall, I think it's going to be a great night–I am really excited about this opportunity. I am honored to fight in Sweden and to headline this card."

„So far I fought in Germany, this will be my first fight in Stockholm. I'm looking forward to seeing the city. I will now start to prepare and I'm happy about it“, said Story.
