On Thursday afternoon, the UFC announced the addition of a pair of welterweight bouts in Nico Musoke vs. Albert Tumenov and Kenny Robertson vs. Sultan Alieve to the highly anticipated UFC on FOX 14 in Sweden this January.

Musoke (13-3), who will be competing in his hometown of Stockholm for the second fight in a row, was last seen earning a decision victory over Alexander Yakovlev at UFC Fight Night 53 in October. Prior to this win, the Swede saw his eight-fight unbeaten streak snapped at the hands of the undefeated Kelvin Gastelum in June. He will enter this bout with nine career stoppage victories and a UFC record of 3-1.

“I’m back on winning ways after the last fight in Stockholm and will continue that in January,” Musoke told UFC.com. “As always, this is a game of constant progression and adaptation. I did well in my last fight, but I know I will do even better next time. He’s a tough European fighter, but I will beat him. I just can’t wait to be back in the Octagon in Stockholm. Can you remember the last time the UFC returned to the same city within three months? It’s incredible. Sweden is now and we are the future.”

His opponent, Tumenov (14-2), is coming off back-to-back first-round knockout victories, with his last one ending with a violent headkick to the skull of Matt Dwyer at UFC Fight Night 54 in October. Prior to this string of wins, the man known as ‘Einstein’ saw his eight-fight win streak snapped with a close split decision loss to Ildemar Alcântara a UFC Fight Night 36 in February. He will enter this bout with 10 career knockout victories and a UFC record of 2-1.

Robertson (14-3), a former NCAA Division I wrestler out of Eastern Illinois, is currently riding a two-fight streak, with his most recent victory ending being a unanimous decision over Alcântara at UFC 175 in July. Prior to these wins, Robertson struggled to put together a string together much success as he traded off wins and losses for five straight fights, which included  a Submission of the Night performance over Brock Jardine at UFC 157.

Aliev (13-1), who will be making his UFC debut, will enter this bout riding an impressive four-fight streak, all of which ended in knockout. To date, the Russian Sambo Champion’s only professional loss has come to the heavy-handed Doug Marshall under the Bellator banner in March 2013. He will enter this bout with 10 career knockout victories.

UFC on FOX 14 is currently set to take place on Jan. 24 at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm. A light heavyweight number one contenders’ bout between hometown hero Alexander Gustafsson and knockout artist Anthony Johnson will serve as the night’s main event. The event will be broadcast live on FOX at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, with Prelims starting at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT on FOX Sports 1.

Tickets for the event will be available to the general public on Friday, Nov. 28 via AXS.com/UFC.
