The UFC is returning to Atlanta, Georgia on January 15, 2014 for UFC Fight Night 35. While the UFC has announced the card for Atlanta, the event will actually take place at the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia. UFC officials announced the pairing earlier today.
The UFC has been to Atlanta twice, with both previous card being headlined by Rashad Evans. The first, UFC 88, saw Evans score the 2008 “Knockout of the Year” over Chuck Liddell. Evans would again headline at UFC 145 in 2012, as he lost to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. The current card’s headliner is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
The UFC also announced two pairings for the January card, as Macon, Georgia’s Cole Miller will take on Sam Sicilia and T.J. Dillashaw will take on Mike Easton at the Gwinnett Center. Tickets will go on sale December 6, and more bouts are expected to be announced soon. The card will air live via FOX Sports 1.
