Two of Europe's top talents, Russia's Omari Akhmedov and Sweden's Mats Nilsson meet in the Octagon in an attempt to pick up an important win and introduce themselves to U.S. fans in the fight capital of the world. A former middleweight standout with a win over fellow prospect Magnus Cedenblad, Nilsson will make his move to 170 pounds for the first time, and he plans on making even more noise as a welterweight. Akhmedov burst onto the UFC scene in 2013 with a Fight of the Night knockout of Thiago Perpetuo, and he wants to add another spectacular finish to his record tonight.
