The UFC will be heading down to Atlantic City, NJ and Tulsa, OK, as the promotion has officially announced Fight Night events in both states this coming summer. UFC President Dana White revealed the news at the post-fight press conference.
Atlantic City will host its eighth UFC event on July 16. The first one was UFC 28 back in 2000, while the most recent event in 2012 featured a headlining bout between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida and was widely considered one of the worst fights of the year.
The UFC Fight Night event in Tulsa, which is scheduled for August 23, will mark the first time the promotion visits the region in the ZUFFA era. The last event was UFC 4, where Royce Gracie defeated Dan Severn in the tournament final.
No bouts were announced for the two fight cards.
