The UFC’s return to Sweden next month will feature four main-card bouts on UFC Fight Pass following a full slate of prelims.

Headlining UFC Fight Night 53 is a welterweight contest 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).

UFC Fight Night 53 takes place Oct. 4 at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm. The main card on UFC Fight Pass starts at 3 p.m. ET (noon PT) following prelims on UFC Fight Pass that are set to begin at 12:10 p.m. ET (9:10 a.m. PT).

In the co-feature, Akira Corassani (12-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) will meet Max Holloway (10-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC). That fight was recently announced, with Holloway stepping in for the recently injured “Korean Zombie,” Chan Sung Jung.

The preliminary card, like the main, is heavy with European talent, including a welterweight bout between Cathal Pendred (14-2-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Gasan Umalatov (15-3-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC). Pendred is an SBG Ireland teammate of featherweight rising star Conor McGregor, as well as headliner Nelson, and in July made his official UFC debut with a bonus-winning stoppage of Mike King at UFC Fight Night 46 in Dublin.

The UFC Fight Night 53 card includes:

MAIN CARD (3 p.m. ET, UFC Fight Pass)

PRELIMINARY CARD (12:10 p.m. ET, UFC Fight Pass)
