UFC on Fox: Gustafsson vs. Johnson (also known as UFC on Fox 14) be held on January 24, 2015 at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

This will be the fourth event that the UFC has held in Sweden and the first to take place in a different arena as the previous events were held at Ericsson Globe Arena. It will also be the second stadium venue to host a UFC event after UFC 129, which took place at the Rogers Centre in Canada.

UFC on FOX 14 will be headlined by Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Johnson. nThe UFC subsequently announced that the winner of the main event will receive a title shot against UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Initially, the UFC was preparing a main event between Gustafsson and Rashad Evans. However, Evans announced he would not be ready during that time frame as he was still rehabilitating from a lingering knee injury.

Gustafsson, who was coming off a controversial loss to UFC champion Jon Jones for the UFC Light Heavyweight title at UFC 165 at the end of 2013, rebounded superbly winning Fight of the Night & Performance of the Night as he TKO’d Jimi Manuwa in London back in March.

Anthony Johnson has been on a tear since returning to the UFC dominating Phil Davis via unanimous decision en route to knocking out Antônio Rogério Nogueira to earn a number one contender spot on this card.

The co-main event features Dan Henderson moving down to middleweight to take on Gegard Mousasi. 

The scores after two UFC events are as follows. 

Round 2 Results

Dale Jordan – 20
Nicholas Rizner – 19
James Carroll – 15
