Thiago Silva to Face Alexander Gustafsson as Little Nog Bows Out

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira has had to pull out of his main event duties at UFC on FUEL 2 due to injury. Stepping in for him will be Thiago Silva, who will now take on Alexander Gustafsson in his stead in the main event.

UFC on Fuel TV: Gustafsson vs. Silva takes place at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

Silva will be making his return to the Octagon since a positive steroid suspension after his unanimous decision win over Brandon Vera. A rematch of that fight was to happen in Virginia at UFC on FX, but Vera was forced off the card.
