UFC Fight Night 53 finally has its main event, and it’s a bout between the undefeated Gunnar Nelson and established welterweight Rick Story.

The October 4th card will go down at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.

Nelson (13-0) has gone 4-0 now since joining the UFC in 2012, and most recently the Iceland native tapped out Zak Cummings at UFC FN 46.

Story (17-8) also scored a submission win in his last outing, as he caught Leonardo Mafra Texeira with an arm-triangle-choke at UFC FN 45. The American fighter is 3-2 in his last 5 scraps.

Some of the other bouts that have been confirmed for UFC FN 53 include Dennis Siver vs. Robert Whiteford, Niklas Backstrom vs. Mike Wilkinson and Ilir Latifi vs. Jan Blachowicz.
