Two of the top ranked light heavyweights are ready for their fight ahead this Sunday in Stockholm at UFC fight Night 109 “Gustafsson vs Texeira”.
Alexander Gustafsson (17-4) and Glover Texeira (26-5) are both former title contenders and the winner of this fight could potentially get the #1 contender spot for this division. “The Mauler” is coming from a win against Jan Blachowicz at UFC Fight Night 93.

Meanwhile, Texeira is coming from a win against Jared Cannonier at UFC 208 and is 4-1 for his last 5 fights with 3 KO finishes. Texeira fought for the title against Jones at UFC 172 but the Brazilian fall short and was unable to conquer the gold against Jones.
