The light-heavyweight contenders will battle in the headliner of UFC on FOX 14 on January 24th, which will go down in Gustafsson’s native Sweden. As you likely know, the fight pits the promotion’s #1 ranked light-heavyweight in Gustafsson, against the #3 positioned Johnson. Whoever wins the bout will advance to face the division’s champion, Mr. Jon Jones.
In advance of Saturday’s fight, the UFC has released a “Road to the Octagon” show, which you can watch below.
Gustafsson (16-2) will be fighting for the first time since last March, when he stopped Jimi Manuwa in the second round. Johnson (18-4), meanwhile, is coming off a knockout win over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira last July.
In the card’s co-headliner, the legendary Dan Henderson will take on middleweight, Gegard Mousasi.
