The Octagon’s long-awaited return to Atlantic City has found a home. According to PressofAtlanticCity, the 5,500-seat arena inside the brand new Revel in New Jersey will host “UFC on FX 4: Maynard vs. Guida” on June 22nd.
The $2.4 billion casino resort is scheduled to open April 2nd. Just in case you were wondering, Beyonce will christen the venue with concerts on May 25th, 26th and 27th.
The last time the world’s most prestigious mixed martial arts promotion held an event in “Las Vegas of the East” was in June of 2005. A heavyweight bout between Paul Buentello and Kevin Jordan headlined UFC 53.
Clay Guida (Pictured) and former lightweight top contender Gray Maynard will serve as the featured attraction in the UFC’s latest show in Atlantic City. The 155-pounders will battle in a five-round affair.
