UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs. Smith (also known as UFC Fight Night 153 or UFC on ESPN+ 11) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will be held on June 1, 2019 at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.[1][2][3]

Background[edit]

A light heavyweight bout between former UFC Light Heavyweight Championship challengers Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Smith is expected to be the event's headliner.[4]

Luigi Vendramini was scheduled to face Nick Hein at the event. However, Vendramini pulled out of the bout in late April citing a knee injury and subsequent surgery.[5] Hein is expected to remain on the card against Frank Camacho.[6]
