The headlining bout on the Stockholm fight card features two UFC light heavyweight contenders who are looking to keep their names in the championship conversation.
Tune in Saturday, June 1, for UFC on ESPN+ 11: Gustafsson vs. Smith full live results from Stockholm, Sweden, on MMAWeekly.com.
Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Smith are both coming off of losses to current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, which puts ever more pressure on them to win in Sweden. It is going to be difficult for either man to find a quick path back to a title shot, but even more so for Gustafsson, as he has now lost to Jones twice.
A victory at UFC on ESPN+ 11 is crucial for both men, however, if they hope to remain relevant in the upper echelon of the 205-pound division.
UFC on ESPN+ 11 lost its original co-main event on Thursday, as home country favorite Ilir Latifi had to bow out of his fight with Swede Volkan Oezdemir because of an injury. With no time to react, UFC officials decided to move forward with 12 bouts, reducing the main card from six to five fights.
The co-main event in Stockholm now features Jimi Manuwa vs. Aleksandar Rakic.
