The first fight for UFC Fight Night 53 has been released by the promotion, as Amir Sadollah will return to take on Nico Musoke.
Set for October 4 from the Ericcson Globe in Stockholm, the entire event is expected to air online via UFC Fight Pass.
Sadollah (6-4) has spent his entire 10-fight pro MMA career in the UFC, coming up from The Ultimate Fighter where he was the Season 7 winner. However, the 33-year-old has not fought for over two years due to injuries and surgery.
Musoke (12-3) has won two of three inside the Octagon, including a pair of decisions over Alessio Sakara and Viscardi Andrade. He dropped his last bout to Kelvin Gastelum earlier this year.
So far, this is the only fight announced for the night.
