Former Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion Miehsa Tate (15-5 MMA, 2-2 UFC) will return to the octagon this January when she faces former Olympian Sara McMann (8-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) at UFC 183 in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, Sara McMann was last seen in action at August’s UFC Fight Night event in Maine, where she scored a split-decision win over Lauren Murphy. Prior the victory, McMann was coming off the first loss of her career, which she suffered to Ronda Rousey at UFC 170 in February.

History will be made when Swedish superstar and No. 1 ranked light heavyweight contender Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson meets No. 3 ranked knockout artist Anthony “Rumble” Johnson on Saturday, January 24 in Stockholm, Sweden to determine the next UFC light heavyweight title challenger.

The bout will take place in front of more than 30,000 fans at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, marking just the second major stadium event in UFC history and the first in Europe. The previous stadium event was the record-breaking UFC 129 event held at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada, as more than 55,000 fans watched Georges St-Pierre defeat Jake Shields.

Gustafsson narrowly lost his title bid to reigning champion Jon “Bones” Jones in the greatest light heavyweight title fight of all time in September of 2013. Now, the rejuvenated 27-year-old will look to draw off the support of a massive hometown crowd when he meets Johnson, a winner of eight straight, including a devastating knockout win over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in his last bout.

“This is going to be an epic event,” Gustafsson, who defeated Jimi Manuwa in his last bout in March, said. “I want more than 30,000 fans to come and witness me win on January 24. Then I’m going to go and get the title! My journey back to the top starts now. ”

“This fight might be on his home turf, but I’m ready to go over to Sweden and prove that I’m the next in the line for the UFC light heavyweight title,” Johnson said. “I’m not intimidated by fighting in front of Alex’s hometown fans. I’m going to go in there and look for the knockout like I do in all of my fights. I can’t wait for this!”

UFC on FOX 14 takes places January 24 live form at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. The evenings co-main event featured a middleweight battle between Kalapaki Joe’s sponsored fighter Gegard Mousasi and former PRIDE champion Dan Henderson.

Dan Henderson (30-12 MMA, 7-6 UFC) will return to the UFC’s middleweight division this January when he faces Kalapaki Joe’s sponsored fighter Gegard Mousasi (35-5-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) in the co-main event of UFC on FOX 14.

UFC officials announced the pairing earlier today.

Dan Henderson was last seen in action at May’s UFC 173 event in Las Vegas, where he suffered a lopsided defeat to Daniel Cormier. Prior to that, “Hendo” was coming off a third-round knockout win over former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio Shogun Rua.

The 44-year-old MMA veteran has suffered losses in 4 of his past 5 bouts.

Meanwhile, former Dream and Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi will be looking to rebound from a submission loss which he suffered to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in September. Prior to the loss, “The Dreamcatcher” was coming off a dominant submission win of his own, which he earned over Mark Munoz in May of 2014.

UFC on FOX 14 goes down January 24 live from Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. The event is headlined by a light heavyweight match-up featuring Alexander Gustafsson taking on Anthony Johnson.
