On Saturday, Jan. 24, the UFC hosted UFC on Fox 14: Gustafsson vs. Johnson from the Tele2 Arena inStockholm, Sweden.
In the night’s main event, former light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson took on hard-charging Anthony “Rumble” Johnson. The 28-year-old Swede Gustafsson was looking to earn another crack at champion Jon Jones. The pair engaged in a thrilling, five-round battle at UFC 165, but Jones was able to retain his title. Since then, Gustafsson had fought just once, stopping Jimi Manuwa by TKO in March. Johnson, meanwhile, had returned to the UFC with a vengeance. The 30-year-old had reeled off eight straight wins, including back-to-back wins over Phil Davis and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira inside the Octagon.
The co-main event featured a battle of former Strikeforce champions as MMA legend Dan Henderson returned to the middleweight division to take on Gegard Mousasi. The 44-year-old Henderson had lost four of his last five fights, but was hoping a return to 185 pounds would change his fortune. Mousasi was aiming to rebound from a third-round submission loss to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza last fall at UFC Fight Night 50.
The 12-fight event kicked off Saturday with two fights streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 4 p.m. ET. Six additional preliminary card bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 5 p.m. ET, with the four-fight main card airing live at 8 p.m. ET live on Fox.
