UFC Sweden gets new main event

The next UFC live event -- UFC on Fuel 2 on April 14 -- will now be headlined by Thiago Silva vs. Alexander Gustafsson. The show is taking place in Stockholm, Sweden, and set a record for the fastest European sellout in UFC history.

Gustafsson was scheduled to fight against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, who had to pull out after suffering a knee injury during training. Silva was originally scheduled for the UFC's May 15th event, his first action after being suspended for a year for testing positive for a substance at the time of his fight with Brandon Vera.
