The lineup is set for October’s UFC Fight Night 53 event, which marks the organization’s return to Sweden.

UFC Fight Night 53 takes place Oct. 4 at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm. The event streams entirely on UFC Fight Pass, though the start time hasn’t been finalized.

However, UFC Fight Night 53 is likely to kick off for North American viewers in the early afternoon. UFC Fight Night 54 takes place later in the day in the Canadian city of Halifax, and the main card kicks off at 10 p.m. ET.

UFC Fight Night 53 in Stockholm features a welterweight headliner between Gunnar Nelson (13-0-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC), who’s ranked No. 15 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA welterweight rankings, and veteran Rick Story (17-8 MMA, 10-6 UFC).

Recent featherweight title challenger Chan Sung Jung (13-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and Swedish fighter Akira Corassani (12-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) meet in the co-headliner.

The full UFC Fight Night 53 lineup, which is heavy on European talent, includes:

MAIN CARD (UFC Fight Pass, time TBD)

PRELIMINARY CARD (UFC Fight Pass, time TBD)
