The UFC is headed to Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday, and if you haven’t noticed, it’s doing so at a time when the nation is making some waves throughout MMA.
Sure, Alexander Gustafsson is becoming one of the UFC’s top stars, but the promotion’s roster also includes Swedes like Niklas Backstrom, Ilir Latifi, Nicholas Musoke, Akira Corassani and Magnus Cedenblad.
Not surprisingly, all of the men listed, except “The Mauler”, are scheduled to fight at UFC FN 53 on Saturday.
Just a couple of days out from the event, the UFC has released an interesting documentary titled “Stories from Stockholm: Swedish Giants”. The video follows several of the men mentioned above and covers the growth of MMA in Sweden.
