After a month-long gap between UFC events the organization was finally back to provide fans with a fix in the form of UFC on Fuel 2. The show took place in Stockholm and was headlined by surging Swede Alexander Gustafsson facing a hungry, returning Thiago Silva.
Gustafsson sent his fellow countrymen home happy with an impressive outpoint of Silva, capitalizing on his precision along with movement to pick apart the Brazilian over a fifteen minute period. The successful showing moved his record to 14-1 with the lone loss coming to Phil Davis.
Meanwhile, Stann picked up an first frame knockout with some shots from above, while Bahadurzada wowed in his debut by leaving Thiago face down in the early stages of their bout’s opening round.
