On Saturday March 30, UFC goes to Atlantic City to put on a stacked fight card.

Headlining the card is a flyweight fight between top ranked Erin Blancfield and Manon Fiorot. Both fighters are undefeated in the UFC with six wins each. The winner might very well fight for the UFC title next.

In the co-main event, welterweight veteran Vicente Luque will take on the entertaining Joaquin Buckley in a three-round bout.

Anton Turkalj returns to action

The prelims features the return of Swedish light heavyweight Anton Turkalj. He will take on promotional debutant Ibo Aslan who has a 12-1 record and four straight wins. The fight is a rematch from their 2020 Brave CF.

Turkalj is in big need of a win since he’s 0-3 since joining the UFC back in September 2022.
