    Where's Newark, close to New York?

    Probably Weidman headlines vs. Corey.

    Northern New Jersey, less than an hour drive into NYC.

    I went to UFC 169 here and I’m about to go to this show with a few of my bros

    I was thinking Weidman, however he seems to be targeting a Fall return..

    Dude, absolutely insane to watch live. You were there too?

    I’ll never forget how electrifying the arena was during those exchanges and when Varner got dropped out cold.

    I know Nasrat Haqparast (the Kelvin Gastelum clone) is fighting on this card, per his social media. Opponent isn't known publicly

    Maybe, but I'm not interested in seeing Weidman who has 1 win since 2015 headline a card.

    Newark? There will be blood. And not in the octagon. This has to be the poorest, most dangerous city in the US the UFC has ever held a fight card. lol.

    IIRC, Haqparast is facing Joaquim Silva at this event.

    Corey Anderson/Reyes or Gillespie/Oliviera will probably headline. If they could do both that would be nice.

    I'd also like to finally see Jim Miller vs Clay Guida.

    The UFC is headed back to New Jersey.

    UFC on ESPN 5 is set Aug. 3 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., the promotion announced Thursday. Tickets go on sale to the public on June 28.

    No fights have been officially announced for the card. However, this past week, MMA Junkie learned a flyweight bout between Jordan Espinosa (12-5 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Matt Schnell (12-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC) is set for the event.

    Once MMA legislation passed in New York in 2016, it was presumed by many that Newark’s days of hosting UFC events likely were a thing of the past since Madison Square Garden is just across the river and state line in Manhattan.

    But that won’t be the case.

    The state of New Jersey most recently hosted a UFC event in April 2018 in Atlantic City. The main event featured a clash between surging lightweights Kevin Lee and Edson Barboza, which saw the former earn the judges’ decision.

    UFC on ESPN 4 will mark the sixth time the promotion has hosted an event in Newark – and the first since January 2016. That main event featured Anthony Johnson in a first-round TKO win over current dual Bellator champion Ryan Bader.

    Newark has hosted a handful of notable bouts since the UFC’s first show there in 2010, including Georges St. Pierre vs. Dan Hardy, Jon Jones vs. Mauricio Rua, Jones vs. Chael Sonnen and Urijah Faber vs. Renan Barao.
