With tickets for the UFC’s debut in Sweden set to go on sale Wednesday, the world’s premier mixed martial arts promotion finally announced the show’s featured attraction. A light heavyweight shootout between Alexander Gustafsson (Pictured) and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira will headline the April 14th event.

“Sweden has been on our radar for a long time and on April 14, we’re excited to finally bring the UFC to Stockholm,” UFC president Dana White said. “We’re putting together a great card for the Swedish fans. I can’t wait to get there in April!”

Gustafsson is coming off a quick TKO victory over Vladimir Matyushenko at UFC 141. Following last month’s scrap, the up-and-comer expressed great interest in competing in front of his fellow Swedes.

Nogueira rebounded from back-to-back decision losses to Phil Davis and Ryan Bader, respectively, with a 1stRound TKO win over Tito Ortiz at UFC 140.

A bantamweight brawl between Brad Pickett and Damacio Page was also added to the roster.

The Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm will host the Octagon’s debut in Sweden. FUEL TV will air the show in North America at 3PM ET/12PM PT.

Here is the card’s current roster:

Papy Abedi vs. James Head

Magnus Cedenblad vs. Francis Carmont

Besam Yousef vs. Simeon Thoresen

Jorgen Kruth vs. Cyrille Diabate

DaMarques Johnson vs. John Maguire

Brad Pickett vs. Damacio Page

Siyar Bahadurzada vs. Paulo Thiago

Brian Stann vs. Alessio Sakara

Alexander Gustafsson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
