Akira Corassani-Robbie Peralta added to UFC’s April stop in Stockholm

Robbie PeraltaThe lineup for the UFC’s recently announced return to Sweden appears to have grown by a bout, as a match-up between featherweights Akira Corassani-Robbie Peralta has been added to the April 6 show. The two were originally scheduled to face off at UFC 156 before Corassani withdrew for health-related reasons.

MMAJunkie was first to report the fight’s addition to the lineup, currently headlined by a light heavyweight tilt between Alexander Gustafsson-Gegard Mousasi.

Corassani should enjoy a warm reception come showtime considering his Swedish roots. He holds an overall record of 10-3 including a Split Decision victory over Andy Ogle last September in his UFC debut.

Comparably, the 16-3 Peralta is on a nine-fight winning streak with a 23-second knockout of Jason Young in his most recent rumble. The strike-based stoppage was the twelfth of his career.
