UFC Fight Night Weigh-in Results: Gunnar Nelson, Rick Story Get Green Light in Sweden

By Brian Knapp Oct 3, 2014
Gunnar Nelson wants to use the Ultimate Fighting Championship marquee as a bridge to contention in the welterweight division. Rick Story has other ideas.

Nelson tipped the scales at 170 pounds for his five-round clash with Story (170) in the UFC Fight Night “Nelson vs. Story” main event on Saturday at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm. Featherweight co-headliners Max Holloway (145) and Akira Corassani (145) also met their contracted weight requirements without issue at Friday’s official weigh-in.

UFC Fight Night “Nelson vs. Story” -- which streams live to UFC Fight Pass at 12:10 p.m./9:10 a.m. PT -- will also feature a light heavyweight clash pitting Ilir Latifi (204) against former KSW champion Jan Blachowicz (205) and a featherweight scrap pairing Niklas Backstrom (145) with “The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes” graduate Mike Wilkinson (145).

Seven preliminary bouts will round out the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s return to Sweden: Magnus Cedenblad (185) vs. Scott Askham (185), Nicholas Musoke (170) vs. Alexander Yakovlev (170), Dennis Siver (145) vs. Charles Rosa (146), Cathal Pendred (171) vs. Gasan Umalatov (170), Tor Troeng (185) vs. Krzysztof Jotko (185), Mairbek Taisumov (155) vs. Marcin Bandel (156) and Ernest Chavez (146) vs. Zubaira Tukhugov (145).
