The UFC returns to network television with a main card taking place in Stockholm in front of a giant venue full of sleep-deprived Swedes. If they're lucky, they'll see their countryman Alexander Gustafsson earn himself a rematch with Jon Jones. Anthony "Rumble" Johnson however, has designs on knocking The Mauler's block off and taking the title shot himself.

Dan Henderson v. Gegard Mousasi
This fight seems pretty damn unnecessary. It's clear that Hendo needs to be on the "Fight Other Old Dudes" tour, but the UFC has decided to book him against a young, hungry title contender. Also, middleweight has not been Hendo's stronger weight class historically. All signs really point to a sad, sad evening for of us old school fans. Mousasi is going to beat Hendo and it won't be close. Mousasi by 2nd round submission.

Akira Corassani v. Sam Sicilia
Wow that's quite a drop off from the top three fights. Oh well, they all can't be winners. That being said, this fight should provide some pretty solid violence to kick off the evening on Fox. Akira is tough, but he has a bad habit of not protecting his chin. Sicilia is going to find it. Frequently. Sicilia by 2nd round TKO.
His real name is Hamid Khorassani:
