The UFC is ending their 10-year tradition of having their annual Super Bowl weekend card in Las Vegas, Nevada. The promotion will be heading to Newark’s Prudential Center for the February 1 fight card. The event was announced at UFC Q&A during the UFC Fight Week festivities.
While the card currently has no headliner or number, UFC president Dana White was pretty certain about who he wants to headline the card. White stated in the post-fight media scrum that he would love to see the rematch between newly crowned champion Chris Weidman and the recently deposed Anderson Silva, provided the former champion wants the bout of course.
The UFC card will take place the day prior to Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The UFC was last at the Prudential Center for UFC 159, which saw UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones defeat Chael Sonnen to cap off a rather bizarre night of action.
