Musoke vs. Tumenov Added to Stockholm Event

UFC FIGHT NIGHT™: GUSTAFSSON vs. JOHNSON - JANUARY 24, 2015 - TELE2 ARENA, STOCKHOLM
TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28
London, UK – Just one day after the announcement of the UFC’s stadium event in Stockholm, due to take place on January 24, another thrilling match up is added to the card which is fast becoming a must see event.

Having both fought and won on October 4 at events in Halifax, Canada and Stockholm, Sweden respectively, now Russian athlete Albert ‘Einstein’ Tumenov (14-2) will face Swedish fighter Nico Musoke (13-3) in front of over 30,000 fans in the UFC’s second ever stadium event.

“I’m back on winning ways after the last fight in Stockholm and will continue that in January," Musoke said. "As always, this is a game of constant progression and adaptation. I did well in my last fight but I know I will do even better next time.  He’s a tough European fighter but I will beat him. I just can’t wait to be back in the Octagon in Stockholm.  Can you  remember the last time the UFC returned to the same city within three months? it’s incredible. Sweden is now and we are the future."

Musoke will enjoy the backing of a home crowd at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, but with a huge MMA following in Russia fans are expected to travel to the Swedish capital to support Tumenov.
