The 26-year-old Cummings defeated Zak Cummings at the UFC Fight Night Dublin event July 19th.
“I am honored to fight in Sweden and to headline this card,” Nelson said. “I expect the Swedish crowd to be pretty loud. I believe I have a big fan base in Sweden. They love my kind of style of fighting and I am of course Scandinavian so we have a good connection. So overall I think it’s going to be a great night – I am really excited about this opportunity.
“Rick Story has fought many of the best fighters. He beat the current champion and he is very experienced and is a very good wrestler. He is a tough opponent and I am happy to be fighting him.”
“I have fought in Germany before but it will be my first time in Stockholm, so I am looking forward to seeing the city,” the 29-year-old Story added. “My schedule now will be to pack up and head down to Arizona to the MMA Lab to start training. I’m really excited for this fight.”
Oh man, this is a really exciting matchup. Stylistically it’s going to be great because Gunnar is a grappler and an attacker, and when it comes to fighting you can’t ask for more than that – someone who attacks and comes at you.”
