Per sources: UFC is targeting a December return to Atlantic City, NJ. Likely a fight night, this would be UFC’s first AC trip since 2018

That last UFC Atlantic City card was a banger. Kevin Lee and Edson Barboza headlined, then the undercard had Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson, plus Aljamain Sterling, Dan Hooker, and Merab Dvalishvili. There was a Philly card one year later, in March of 2019, but the promotion hasn’t been back to the Philly/South Jersey region since the pandemic.
Could be a good opportunity to get some of the local guys on the card. We had Bill Algeo on Crossing Broadcast recently. There’s Sean Brady, Pat Sabatini, Joe Pyfer, the Daukaus Brothers, Andre Petroski, Joe Solecki, etc. AC has always been important to the combat sports game, and Cage Fury is headquartered down there. Ring of Combat also. Good to see UFC coming back.
