The UFC’s Spring drought will come to an end this weekend with UFC on Fuel TV 2: Gustafsson vs. Silva. For their second offering on the network, the promotion is taking their traveling road show to Sweden for the first time.

In the night’s main event, rising Swedish light heavyweight Alexander Gustafsson will appear before his countrymen to take on the returning Thiago Silva. Silva has been out of action since January of 2011 for trying to beat a drug test in the state of Nevada by submitting fake urine instead of his own (which he admitted was laced with banned substances). With his suspension run out, Silva will look to reestablish his presence in the 205lbs division. The 25-year-old Gustafsson is riding an impressive four-fight winning streak (all wins came via stoppage before the third round) into this fight and will have the added motivation of avenging teammate Brandon Vera, who Silva thrashed in his last fight.

Today, those fighters and a few more filled the dais for the UFC on Fuel TV 2 pre-fight press conference, which you can view in its entirety below, courtesy StudioMMA.

...it was intimidating – an MMA Gym – oh man. I walked in though and people smiled and welcomed me with open arms, there were little kids all over the place taking classes and people were smiling and laughing.
