Brad Pickett will start his bantamweight title charge again with a fight against American Mike Easton in Sweden on April 6.

The British fighter is coming off a disappointing split decision loss to Eddie Wineland at UFC 155.

The UFC confirmed that the fight will take place on Thursday in the Eriksson Globe Arena, the same place where Pickett beat Damacio Page by submission in April 2012.

Easton is also coming off a decision loss, to Raphael Assuncao, a defeat which broke an eight-fight winning streak.

The card in Sweden will be headlined by hometown fighter Alexander Gustafsson taking on promotional newcomer and fomer Strikeforce and Dream light-heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi.
