The UFC has announced that it will return to Atlantic City for the first time since 2005, way back when Andrei Arlovski was the main event and wasn't a broken shell of himself and had a chin strong enough to withstand at least a stiff breeze.
I was always told Atlantic City is a poor man's Las Vegas...and that's a pretty spot on statement. The first time I went to AC and Vegas was six months apart. When I went to AC I thought "this isn't bad"...then I went to Vegas a couple months later and thought "wow, Atlantic City is pretty shitty".
Even so, the land of jug handles, toll booths, Snooki and her demon spawn is being blessed with a main event of Clay Guida and Gray Maynard. The fight will likely be held at Revel Atlantic City, the newest casino/hotel which opens in late May. No other fights have been announced for the card as of yet, but with "The Carpenter" on tap, I might have to get the doubloons together for an AC excursion come June.
