UFC fans in Sweden will be treated to a free card headlined by the highest-profile Swede in the organization, Alexander Gustafsson, in a special Sunday event. Gustafsson will take on Glover Teixeira in a light heavyweight main event for UFC Fight Night 109.

The event will take place at a normal hour in Sweden, but in the United States, it will begin bright and early with the prelims at 10 a.m. ET. The first two preliminary fights will be streamed on UFC Fight Pass, and the remainder of the prelims and the main card will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1.

Sunday’s main card is expected to begin at 1 p.m.

Gustafsson is coming off a unanimous decision win over Jan Blachowicz in September 2016. He’s challenged for the light heavyweight belt twice, and both times he was on the losing end of a decision. But in both fights, there was a real case to be made for him being the winner.

Currently, the belt belongs to Daniel Cormier, who is expected to defend it against Jon Jones at UFC 214. Teixeira also fought for the title back in April 2014. The winner of Sunday’s fight may not be next in line for the title, but the loser will be out of the title picture for some time.

Fan favorite Ben Saunders will also be on the main card, up against Peter Sobotta in welterweight action. In the penultimate fight, Volkan Oezdemir will face Misha Cirkunov.

Below is all you need to know to watch Sunday’s card, as well as the full fight card.
