The UFC will head down the shore this summer with a UFC on FX </a>event planned for June 22 in Atlantic City.
The main event, as announced on Sunday, will be a five-round battle between two of the best lightweights in the world, Clay Guida and Gray Maynard. Since then, a handful of fights have come together, promising another exciting event on the Eastern seaboard.
Two welterweight bouts will pit the best of Brazil against home-grown talent. Jersey boy Dan Miller will drop to welterweight for the first time in his UFC career for a fight against Ricardo Funch. Plus Matthew Riddle, who grew up one state over in Allentown, Pennsylvania, will take on Luis "Beicao" Ramos. Riddle and Ramos were originally slated to fight at UFC 141 in Las Vegas, but the fight was scratched after Riddle became sick the day of the event.
Two other Garden State natives have also landed spots on the fight card. Rich Attonito, who trains at American Top Team in Florida but was born in Elizabeth, NJ, will face Rick "The Horror" Story at 170 pounds. Plus Nick "The Jersey Devil" Catone will return to action after more than a year in a middleweight tilt with TUF veteran Chris Camozzi.
One more welterweight bout was added at the end of Wednesday: submission specialist TJ Waldburger will face relentless wrestler Brian "Bad Boy" Ebersole.www.ufc.com
