UFC 302 official for Newark on June 1; multiple fights announced

The date, location and venue have been confirmed for UFC 302, with the promotion set to bring a pay-per-view event to Newark, N.J., for the second consecutive year.

The octagon will touch down at Prudential Center on June 1, the organization announced Saturday (via X).

Newark was an annual visit for the UFC from 2011 to 2016. There was a multiple-year absence until 2019, then again until 2023. Following a successful UFC 288 last May, however, another stop is slated.

Tickets for UFC 302 go on sale April 12, and although no headliner has been announced, a number of matchups have already been booked.

The latest UFC 302 lineup includes:

  • Roman Dolidze vs. Anthony Hernandez

  • Joselyne Edwards vs. Ailin Perez

  • Grant Dawson vs. Joe Solecki

  • Jake Matthews vs. Phil Rowe

  • Bassil Hafez vs. Mickey Gall

  • Gillian Robertson vs. Michelle Waterson-Gomez
