UFC on Fuel TV: Gustafsson vs Silva Betting Odds

The UFC returns to action after an unusually long break from action on April 14th for UFC on Fuel TV: Gustafsson vs Silva. The Octagon heads back to Europe, more specifically Sweden and the event will feature some of the top European talent the promotion has to offer.

Headlining the show, Sweden’s own Alexander Gustafsson will attempt to take another step up the Light Heavyweight ladder when he battles return veteran Thiago Silva. Silva is a dangerous opponent for anyone at 205, but he has been out of action since being suspended in early 2011. Prior to his suspension, Silva had been putting together his own run at the title but a pair of defeats against former champions Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans slowed his progress. Gustafsson has compiled an impressive 5-1 record since signing with the UFC, most recently defeating Vladdy Matyushenko at UFC 141. Prior to signing with the UFC, Gustafsson was a perfect 4-0 while fighting at home in Sweden and will attempt to add to that record, but could be in tough against the Brazilian knockout artist. With a combined 20 knockout wins, the chances of this fight going the distance are minimal so make sure not to miss a minute from the opening bell.

UFC on Fuel 2 Preview and Predictions

The co-main event features a middleweight clash between the ultra-tough Brian Stann and the always entertaining Alessio Sakara. Prior to suffering an injury that has prevented him from competing since early 2011, Alessio had put together a solid 3-1 mark and will try to crack the division’s top 10 with a win over Stann. Brian Stann also suffered a setback in his last appearance, dropping a submission defeat against current #1 contender Chael Sonnen. Both Stann and Sakara are the type of fighters that always bring their A-game to the cage and fans should expect nothing less in this stellar co-main event.

The rest of the main card will feature the Featherweight debut of Dennis Siver as he tangles with the always entertaining Diego Nunes, a Bantamweight clash between Brad Pickett and Damacio Page, and two 170 pound clashes: Paulo Thiago versus Siyar Bahadurzada and DaMarques Johnson versus John Maguire.

The prelims feature a number of talented fighters including: James Head, Papy Abedi, Cyrille Diabate, and Jason Young. The undercard will also showcase a list of new talent that will be focussed on impressing the crowd and the UFC brass in their first Octagon appearances.
