UFC Atlantic City main event announced: Sean Brady vs. Vicente Luque

UFC Atlantic City will be headlined by a welterweight contender fight.

Sean Brady and Vicente Luque will collide in a five-round main event atop the UFC Fight Night card March 30 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., UFC CEO Dana White announced Friday.

Brady (16-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC), who fights out of Philadelphia, will headline in the UFC for the first time and do so relatively close to home. He most recently competed in December when he defeated Kelvin Gastelum by third-round submission.

Luque (22-9-1 MMA, 15-5 UFC) was scheduled to compete at UFC 296 in December, but his fight was later canceled when opponent Ian Garry withdrew due to illness. Luque looks to extend his winning streak following a five-round unanimous decision victory over former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in August.

With the addition, the UFC Atlantic City lineup includes:

  • Sean Brady vs. Vicente Luque

  • Erin Blanchfield vs. Manon Fiorot

  • Bruno Silva vs. Chris Weidman

  • Loopy Godinez vs. Virna Jandiroba

  • Jacob Malkoun vs. Andre Petroski

  • Dominick Reyes vs. Carlos Ulberg

  • Chidi Njokuani vs. Rhys McKee

  • Dennis Buzkuja vs. Connor Matthews

  • Caolan Loughran vs. Angel Pacheco

  • Julio Arce vs. Herbert Burns
