A bout between Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira fell through in 2015, but it looks like the UFC’s hoping to rebook the match-up for its upcoming schedule.

The light-heavyweight contenders were scheduled to fight at an event that took place in Berlin, back in 2015, but Gustafsson had to withdraw due to an injury. According to a new report from MMA Fighting, the UFC is hoping to book Gustafsson – Teixeira for a May 28th card in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Swedish star Gustafsson (17-4) is coming off a decision win over Jan Blachowicz in September. Brazil’s Teixeira (26-5), meanwhile, earned a decision victory over Jared Cannonier earlier this month at UFC 208.
