The UFC’s April schedule is absolutely loaded with fantastic fights and quality cards, and the Fight Night event they’re holding on the 21st is a strong offering. In the main event, Edson Barboza faces off against Kevin Lee in a key battle between two top lightweight contenders coming off difficult losses. This is the UFC’s first trip to Atlantic City, New Jersey since 2014, and their first in New Jersey since they legalized MMA in the state of New York.
It’s unclear as to what the co-main event is, but one would assume it’s either David Branch against Thiago Santos, or Paulo Costa versus Uriah Hall. I’d bank on it being Branch vs. Santos, although both fights are important for the middleweight division.
Also featured is Aljamain Sterling against Brett Johns, as well as New Jersey’s own Jim Miller and New Zealand’s Dan Hooker. This is a fun card and hopefully everything stays intact.
