Alexander Gustafsson is set to take on Ben Rothwell on May 21th at a UFC Fight Night.
The card is yet to announce a venue and a main event.
Gustafsson returned after a short retirement in 2020 against Fabricio Werdum where he lost via first-round armbar.
Then in late 2021 he was set to return to 205lbs to take on Paul Craig but had to withdraw due to injury.
Rothwell has mixed results in his last five.

Beating OSP and Chris Barnett, but has suffered losses to Andrei Arlovski, Marcin Tybura and a 30-second knockout in his last fight to Marcos Rogerio de Lima.
Gustafsson at age 35 is getting to prime heavyweight age, and I will be good to see if he can rattle off some wins and get ranked.
Possibly even a title run.
He’s a legend and a UFC Hall of Famer who’s been in the UFC for 13 years.
