MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Tickets to ‘UFC on Fuel 2′ Sell Out in Less Than an Hour

“I’m going to prove once and for all that I am the #1 Light Heavyweight in the world from the Åland Islands to the Faroe Islands.

It looks like the UFC’s first venture to Sweden will be a success, at least as far as live gate revenue is concerned. According to a report from MMAViking.com, tickets to the April 14th card sold out in under an hour. As usual, UFC Fight Club members and UFC Newsletter subscribers were given first crack at tickets before they were sold to the general public.

You know as well as I do how hard it is to get people to shell out their hard-earned krona so close to Walpurgis Night, which only emphasizes how popular the sport has become in Nordic sphere. Though the capacity of Sweden’s Ericsson Globe Arena tops out at 14,000 seats, the fast sellout is reminiscent of the organization’s previous trips to Canada and Brazil.

Full line-up for the event:

Alexander Gustafsson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Brian Stann vs. Alessio Sakara
Paulo Thiago vs. Siyar Bahadurzada
DaMarques Johnson vs. John Maguire
Brad Pickett vs. Damacio Page
Akira Corassani vs. Jason Young
Magnus Cedenblad vs. Francis Carmont
Papy Abedi vs. James Head
Besam Yousef vs. Simeon Thoresen
Jorgen Kruth vs. Cyrille Diabate

A place that leaves the “ego” at the door. We here at the The Phoenix Way pride ourselves in the fact that we welcome everyone. All of our students train hard and at the same time work well with each other so everyone can improve together. That is how everyone grows so well.

Alexander Gustafsson has the gayest tattoo in MMA. (Belcher is runner up)
.
Anyone can tell Gusty that only blacks and browns own pit bulls.
.
And at that, they either live in the hood, or run around calling home in the little ghetto towns with fake grills and phony ropes, fronting like they came straight out of Compton.
.
He doesn't look to smart, so I guess it makes sense.

This is awesome. I am happy for the UFC to have so many fans around the world. It will just continue to grow from here.

I dont see the Stann vs Sakara fight going the distance.

@Davestruction: What time does the show kick off?

I was really surprised that it sold out that quickly! I didn't think we had that many fans here in Sweden, I guess people fly in from Denmark, Norway and Finland too!:)

Luckily I got my ticket the day before, yay!! :D
