Gustafsson vs. Teixeira Targeted for Sweden

Multiple sources are reporting that the UFC is targeting a light heavyweight contest featuring Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira for a May 29 event in Stockholm, Sweden.

The two were originally scheduled to meet in June 2015 at a UFC Fight Night event in Berlin, Germany. However, Gustafsson was forced to withdraw from the contest due to injury.

Gustafsson, who would be fighting in his home country, most recently competed against Jan Blachowicz in September. He won the bout by unanimous decision, snapping a two-fight losing streak. He was scheduled to face Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in November, but he was forced out of that bout with an injury as well.

Teixeira defeated Jared Cannonier earlier this month at UFC 208.
