Tickets on sale Wednesday to UFC Fight Club members, Friday to general public
The Ultimate Fighting Championship goes back to Atlantic City, N.J., this summer for the first time since UFC 53 in June 2005.
Tickets for UFC on FX: Maynard vs. Guida, which takes place June 22 at Ovation Hall at the new Revel resort casino, are available with special presales Wednesday and Thursday and go on sale to the general public Friday.
UFC Fight Club members can purchase tickets Wednesday at 10 a.m. Eastern through ufcfightclub.com. On Thursday, subscribers to the UFC’s newsletter can get tickets at 10 a.m. with a newsletter-specific password. Tickets for the general public will be released Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster outlets and are priced at $75, $125, $225 and $350, plus service fees.
On Monday, the UFC made Revel official as the site for the show, which will be the promotion’s fourth event to be broadcast live on the FX cable network. Ovation Hall is a 5,500-seat amphitheater at the resort, which doesn’t open officially until late May. It began a “preview” soft opening earlier this month.
The main event for UFC on FX 4 will be a lightweight contenders bout between two-time title challenger Gray Maynard and Clay Guida. The fight will be a five-round bout. The card will be the UFC’s seventh in Atlantic City. The first three took place at the Trump Taj Mahal, followed by three at the Boardwalk Hall.
“The fans have been asking for us to come back to Atlantic City for a long time, and on June 22, we’re going to deliver an incredible night of fights,” UFC president Dana White said in a statement. “Atlantic City was where we held our first event as owners of the UFC in 2001, and I can’t wait to get back. This fight between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida could be one of the best of the year. Both of these guys fight at an incredible pace and I expect a five-round war.”
Apart from the Maynard-Guida main event, UFC on FX 4 features a trilogy rubber match between Spencer Fisher and Sam Stout, a featherweight bout between Ross Pearson and Cub Swanson and a featherweight fight between highly touted prospect Jimy Hettes and TUF product Steven Siler. New Jersey natives on the card include Dan Miller, Nick Catone and Rich Attonito.
