A welterweight bout between Nicholas Musoke and Albert Tumenov has been added to UFC on Fox 14 on Jan. 24.
Ultimate Fighting Championship officials announced the pairing on Thursday. The matchup joins a card that already features a main event of Alexander Gustafsson against Anthony Johnson, as well as Gegard Mousasi versus Dan Henderson. UFC on Fox 14 will take place in Stockholm at the Tele2 Arena.
Musoke was victorious in his last UFC outing, defeating Alexander Yakovlev via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night “Nelson vs. Story.” The Stockholm native will be fighting for the second consecutive time from the friendly confines of Sweden. Thus far, Musoke is 3-1 under the Zuffa banner.
Tumenov has bounced back nicely from a split decision loss against Ildemar Alcantara in his promotional debut with two straight first-round knockout wins. “Einstein,” defeated Anthony Lapsley at UFC Fight Night “Brown vs. Silva” and then followed up the win with a vicious head kick finish of Matt Dwyer at UFC Fight Night “MacDonald vs. Saffiedine.”
