In an electrifying turn of events, the UFC's upcoming return to Atlantic City will feature a high-stakes flyweight bout as its main event. Erin Blanchfield and Manon Fiorot are set to headline UFC Atlantic City on March 30 at Boardwalk Hall, promising fans an action-packed showdown.

The decision to elevate Blanchfield vs. Fiorot to the main event spot came after UFC CEO Dana White's initial announcement regarding a welterweight clash between Sean Brady and Vicente Luque was derailed due to Brady's injury. Now, all eyes will be on Blanchfield and Fiorot as they step into the spotlight.

Blanchfield, riding a remarkable nine-fight win streak, is no stranger to the main event stage. With a flawless 6-0 record in the UFC, including a sensational victory over former world champion Jessica Andrade, she's proven herself as a force to be reckoned with in the flyweight division. Her recent decision win against Taila Santos only adds to the anticipation surrounding her upcoming bout.

On the other side of the octagon, Fiorot brings her brand of dominance. Undefeated since her professional debut in 2018, she boasts a perfect 6-0 record in the UFC. Her victory over former champion Rose Namajunas at UFC Paris showcased her skill and determination, setting the stage for her highly anticipated debut in a UFC main event.

As the anticipation builds for UFC Atlantic City, fans can expect nothing short of an epic battle between two of the flyweight division's most formidable competitors. Blanchfield vs. Fiorot is not just a fight—it's a showdown that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on the MMA world.
