Swedish card filling up with Englishmen

Three more fights were announced for UFC on fueltv in Sweden:
Mitrione vs. Defries, Ryan Couture vs. Ross Pearson and Ryan Laflare fights Benny Allway from Australia.

I would have liked to see more fighters that are closer to Sweden like Tarec Saffiedine from Belgium, Martin Kampmann from Denmark, Gunnar Nelson from Iceland and Anton Kuivanen from Finland, but looks like the card is pretty much filled out (Also Gunnar Nelson and Kuivanen have fights coming up soon).

Following: Cain , JDS, Werdum, Shogun, Machida, Weidman, Pettis, Aldo, Melendez

I share your complaint, especially compared to fuel 7 ( England) and fuel 8 (Japan) this card doesn't share the same luster. Fuel cards generally broadcast 6 bouts, with 11 already announced its hard to see who would join the main event.

Mitrione - likely
Pearson/Couture - lock
Pickett/Easton - lock
Johnson/Madadi - likely

So hopefully then can add another solid name to fill out the card,

Ufc Events Attended:

Ufc Fight Night: Davis Vs Nogueira, Ufc 131, Ufc 143, Ufc 148, Ufc on Fox 5, Ufc 156, Ufc on Fox 8

That's to be expected from a guy who will soon have his UFC debut.

I don't think nationality matters so much as being European.

Pearson/Couture is a really interesting matchup.
