UFC Set to Make Return to New Jersey
The UFC is set to make its return to New Jersey.
Nate Diaz fights Jim Miller in the main event of a card set to air Saturday on Fox. Diaz is a former “Ultimate Fighter” winner and will earn a shot at the lightweight crown later this year with a victory.
Johny Hendricks takes on Josh Koscheck in another headline bout. Hendricks becomes the No. 1 contender for the welterweight title with a win.
The UFC is confident the day will come when New York will legalize MMA. Until then, it’s running a show six miles away across the river at the Izod Center.
