On Saturday, January 24th the UFC will hold UFC on Fox 14: Gustafsson vs. Johnson from the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

In the night’s main event Sweden’s own, Alexander Gustafsson, will battle Anthony Johnson with a shot at Jon Jones’ light heavyweight crown on the line. Gustafsson hasn’t fought in over ten months. Last March he dispatched Jimi Manuwa in the second round to seemingly earn a shot at Jones. That fight was scheduled to happen last Fall, but Gustafsson had to withdraw due to an injury. Daniel Cormier stepped in that slot and ended up taking Gustafsson’s spot. After that fight it is clear that the Swede is still the biggest threat to Jones. To get his second crack at Jones, Gustafsson will first have to get through Johnson. Johnson returned to the UFC last April in his third different weight class in the promotion and looked like he had finally found his home. Johnson has won his first two bouts since returning to the UFC and seven overall and could become the third member of the Blackzillians team to earn a light heavyweight title shot with a victory.

In the night’s co-main event Gegard Mousasi welcomes Dan Henderson back to the middleweight division. Amazingly Mousasi has over forty fights to his record at under thirty years of age. The native of The Netherlands has had mixed results since entering the UFC alternating wins and losses. Mousasi was defeated by Ronaldo Souza his last time out. In Mousasi, Dan Henderson finds a rare opponent with the same number of fights as him even though he is fourteen years his senior. Henderson is dropping down to middleweight in hopes of one last chance at a title run. Henderson’s recent results at light heavyweight tend to show that this might be a good move. Henderson has only won one of his last five fights and was most recently defeated by Daniel Cormier.

Also on the main card we will see a long awaited light heavyweight showdown between Phil Davis and Ryan Bader. Both men are coming off of extremely impressive victories. Davis dominated Glover Teixeira in his last time out while Bader stifled the fast rising, Ovince St. Preux. The winner of this bout will be looking to move up into title contention at light heavyweight.

This card may be going off in the middle of the night in Sweden, but we get it at a normal time here stateside. The main card airs at 8 p.m. ET on FOX. Preliminary action starts off on UFC Fight Pass at 4 p.m. ET with the action shifting to Fox Sports 1 at 5 p.m. ET.
