UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta confirmed to ESPN that the UFC will be heading to Atlantic City, likely on June 22, for UFC on FX 4. Six weeks prior to that, the UFC is set to host UFC on FOX 3 from East Rutherford, New Jersey.
“Atlantic City is penciled in for this summer,” Fertitta said.
All total, the UFC has held six events in Atlantic City, but none since 2005 and UFC 53. No bouts have been confirmed for the expected card.
UFC on FOX 3 will feature a lightweight clash between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller, which could help decide the next No. 1 contender to the title, currently held by Frankie Edgar.
