Alexander Gustafsson is set to compete for the first time in approximately ten months on Saturday, and he certainly doesn’t have a warm-up fight booked for him at UFC on FOX 14.
The Swedish star will take on fellow, light-heavyweight contender Anthony Johnson at the January 24th event, and he’ll get to do so, in his home city of Stockholm.
Recently the UFC posted an interesting segment titled “First Person With Alexander Gustafsson”. The video features “The Mauler” discussing his transition from boxing to MMA, his decision to go train with Phil Davis–who defeated him in 2010–and getting to fight in Sweden. In addition, Gustafsson also talks about Johnson, and what he expects to go down on Saturday night.
You can watch the segment below.
UFC on FOX 14 will be hosted by the Tele2Arena in Stockholm and will also feature a middleweight fight between Dan Henderson and Gegard Mousasi.
