“The Mauler” got back into the win column late in 2016 with a decisive victory over Jan Blachowicz to snap a two-fight win streak. Gustafsson, a native of Sweden, has a chance to jump right back into the title contention with another win in front of a hometown crowd.
Standing in his way is hard-hitting Brazilian, Glover Teixeira, winner of four of his last five fights. Teixeira’s only loss during that span came against UFC 210 title challenger Anthony Johnson and he’d love nothing more than to beat Gustafsson and potentially earn another shot at “Rumble.”
The UFC also announced a few more fights for the card:
Magnus Cedenblad vs. Chris Camozzi
Christian Colombo vs. Damian Grabowski
Jack Hermansson vs. Alex Nicholson
Tickets for UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs. Teixeira go on sale Friday, March 31.
