The UFC returns to Atlantic City, New Jersey this Saturday for the first time since 2018, with this year’s UFC Atlantic City card featuring a couple of potential bangers.

Among them, an early pick for Fight of the Night in Nate “the Train” Landwehr, taking on short-notice foe Jamall Emmers in the featured preliminary card bout. And in main card action, Bill Algeo was set to throw down with Canada’s Kyle “The Monster” Nelson in another compelling featherweight bout.

While the Atlantic City date had originally been headlined by Vicente Luque vs. Sean Brady, an injury to Brady, who never had been good to go for the bout despite the promotion announcing it, resulted in Luque instead being paired up with Joaquin Buckley. Headlining duties, meanwhile, went to a key women’s flyweight bout featuring Erin Blanchfield and Manon Fiorot.

The UFC Atlantic City official weigh-ins get underway at 9AM ET on Friday, March 29; results can be found below.

Julio Arce was the last man to weigh in on Friday and the only fighter to come in heavy for UFC Atlantic City. His initial attempt saw him hit the scale at 147lbs behind the barrier; a second attempt an hour later actually saw him 0.25lbs heavier.
