The latest fight card to start reaching capacity is UFC on FX 4, which takes place on June 22 in Atlantic City, N.J. Several bouts have been added this week, including a couple of welterweight battles pitting Matt Riddle vs. Luis “Beicao” Ramos and Rick Story vs. Rich Attonito.
Riddle (6-3), who was born in nearby Allentown, Penn., is coming off of a split decision victory over Henry Martinez at UFC 143 that likely saved his UFC career. Prior to that, he had lost back-to-back bouts.
Ramos (19-7) will be trying to erase the memory of his Octagon debut at UFC 144 in Japan. He lost via a 40-second TKO to fellow Brazilian Erick Silva.
Story (13-5), once rocketing towards a title shot, has fallen on hard times in his last two outings, losing unanimous decisions to Martin Kampmann and Charlie Brenneman. He’ll be trying to get back on track on his home turf in New Jersey.
Attonito (10-5), another Jersey boy, will also be trying to right his career. He lost his most recent bout, getting TKO’d by Jake Hecht at UFC 140 last December in Toronto.
A lightweight contender bout between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida headlines the UFC on FX 4 fight card.
