The Ultimate Fighting Championship has booked another fight for its October 4th event in Stockholm, and it will feature Sweden’s Niklas Backstrom taking on Britain’s Mike Wilkinson.

The featherweight bout will be hosted by the city’s Globe Arena.

Backstrom (8-0) is coming off a successful Octagon debut, as he tapped out Tom Niinimaki at UFC Fight Night card in May.

Wilkinson (8-1), meanwhile, will be looking to rebound from a technical submission loss to Rony Mariano Bezerra at UFC on FUEL TV 10 last June. Prior to that Wilkinson scored a UD win over Brendan Loughnane in his UFC debut.

The only other bout that’s been confirmed for UFC FN 53 thus far is a welterweight clash between Amir Sadollah and Nico Musoke.
