by Ryan Frederick on February 8, 2013

The card for the UFC’s return to Sweden in April is starting to come together as four fights have been added to the night’s festivities.

Bantamweights Brad Pickett (22-7, 2-2 UFC) and Mike Easton (13-2, 3-1 UFC) will square off as both look to get back into the win column following losses in their last fights. Pickett dropped a decision to Eddie Wineland at UFC 155 while Easton also dropped a decision to Raphael Assuncao at UFC On FOX 5.

Featherweight Marcus Brimage (6-1, 3-0 UFC) puts his four-fight win streak on the line against Conor McGregor (12-2, 0-0 UFC), who will be making his UFC debut. Brimage is coming off a win over Jimy Hettes at UFC 152 in September. McGregor enters the UFC riding an eight-fight win streak, and he is a double champion in the Cage Warriors promotion in Europe.

Lightweights Reza Madadi (12-3, 1-1 UFC) and Michael Johnson (12-7, 4-3 UFC) will also square off. Both lost their last fight- Madadi to Cristiano Marcello at UFC 153 and Johnson to Myles Jury at UFC 155.

Plus, welterweights and Strikeforce imports Adlan Amagov (11-2-1, 0-0 UFC) and Chris Spang (5-1, 0-0 UFC) will meet as both look to score their second straight win.

UFC On FUEL TV 9 takes place on April 6 from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. The night’s main card airs on FUEL TV and the preliminary fights air on Facebook. A five-round light heavyweight showdown between Alexander Gustafsson and Gegard Mousasi serves as the headliner for the event.
