According to Swedish website MMAnytt.se, a featherweight affair between Ross Pearson (Pictured) and Dennis Siver will go down April 14th when the UFC makes their debut in Sweden.

Pearson posted a unanimous decision victory over Siver in a lightweight battle at “UFC Fight Night 21” in March 2010. Despite scoring a resounding a 30-27 verdict on all three scorecards, their standup scrap was highly competitive.

Pearson just hung a decision win over Junior Assuncao last month at UFC 131. The Brit has alternated between wins and losses over his last five contests.

Siver had his four-fight winning streak snapped by Donald Cerrone at UFC 137 in October.

Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden hosts the festivities. FUEL TV will air the main card live in North America at 3PM ET/12PM PT.

Here is the card’s updated roster:

Papy Abedi vs. James Head

Magnus Cedenblad vs. Francis Carmont

Besam Yousef vs. Simeon Thoresen

Akira Corassani vs. Jason Young

Jorgen Kruth vs. Cyrille Diabate

DaMarques Johnson vs. John Maguire

Brad Pickett vs. Damacio Page

Ross Pearson vs. Dennis Siver

Siyar Bahadurzada vs. Paulo Thiago

Brian Stann vs. Alessio Sakara

Alexander Gustafsson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
