Swedish MMA fans have been waiting for a UFC event in Sweden for many years.

Last time UFC visited Sweden was more than five years ago, in 2019. However, promotional newcomer Felipe Lima has high hopes to fight in Sweden sooner rather than later.

“It would be a dream to fight on the main card in Stockholm. That would be great,” Lima said visiting Swedish podcast Käftsmällspodden. “We have a lot of UFC fighters. We have Bernardo [Sopai], we have Guram [Kutateladze], we have Pannie [Kianzad], Josefine [Knutsson], Volkan [Oezdemir], Khamzat [Chimaev] as well.”

“Khamzat can be the main event. I can be the co-main event. No problem,” Lima laughs.

Felipe Lima expects UFC Sweden soon

So far, the UFC visited Sweden six times. Two-time title challenger Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson has headlined four of the events, and Lima has a strong feeling that UFC wants the light heavyweight veteran as a headliner once more.

“They are coming soon to be honest. There’s been a while since the last time. I didn’t hear anything but you can feel it. They have shows in Paris all the time. I mean, the problem is that, because the star is Gustafsson, he is the main guy, who can sell out the arena and everything. I hope Gustafsson does one more fight and we can be on that card together.”
