On Friday, April 5, the UFC held the weigh-ins for its upcoming UFC on Fuel TV 9 event which takes place from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday, April 6.

The event is headlined by former Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi who takes on fellow promotional newcomer Ilir Latifi. Mousasi was expected to face Latifi’s teammate, Alexander Gustafsson, in a fight that may have determined the next No. 1 contender at 205 pounds. However, the towering Swede suffered a cut in training and was not cleared by the Swedish MMA Federation.

In addition to the main event, the main card also features Ultimate Fighter winner Ross Pearson taking on Ryan Couture in a lightweight affair, heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Philip De Fries lock horns, explosive bantamweights Mike Easton and Brad Pickett do battle, another TUF champion, Diego Brandao, meets Pablo Garza at featherweight and Sweden’s Akira Corassani takes on Robbie Peralta, also at featherweight.

The event will feature a total of 13 bouts. The six-fight main card will air live on Fuel TV, while the preliminary card will stream via the promotion’s YouTube page.

The main card will air live on Fuel TV beginning at 2 p.m. ET with the preliminary card streaming live on the promotion’s YouTube page starting at 10:30 a.m ET.
