Nicholas Musoke and Amir Sadollah have agreed to a welterweight bout at UFC Fight Night Stockholm on Oct. 4 at the Globe Arena in Sweden.

UFC officials announced the fight on Thursday. As of now, no other fights have been named for the event.

Following two years away from the Octagon due to nerve damage, “The Ultimate Fighter 7” winner Sadollah will look to get back to his winning ways. The 33-year-old Richmond, Va., native was last in a losing effort against Dan Hardy on Sept. 29, 2012 at UFC on Fuel TV 5. The fight also served as “The Outlaw’s” last outing under the Zuffa banner.

Musoke will look to utilize his hometown advantage when he takes on Sadollah. “Nico” had won three straight fights before dropping a unanimous decision loss to Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Fight Night “Swanson vs. Stephens.” Musoke has lost only three times in his professional career: Gastelum, Cathal Pendred and Danny Mitchell make up that list.
