Atlanta Set to Host UFC 146

The UFC is headed back to the "Peach State" for the first time since 2008.

UFC 146 will take place April 21 in Atlanta, according to a report on Tuesday's episode of UFC Tonight on FUEL TV. No fights were announced for the card, which is expected to take place at Phillips Arena.

The last event held in Atlanta was UFC 88 on Sept. 6, 2008, also at Phillips Arena. That night was highlighted by Rashad Evans' second-round knockout of Chuck Liddell. The event drew a crowd of 14,736 and a gate of $2.6 million.

UFC 146 will mark the promotion's fourth trip to Georgia. Augusta, Ga., was the site of UFC 11 in 1996 and UFC 13 in 1997.
