ORLANDO – The UFC isn't done adding destinations to its already jam-packed summer schedule.

At Saturday night's UFC on FOX 11 post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White announced that the UFC will make its return visit to Atlantic City on July 16, and make a stop in Tulsa, Okla. on Aug. 23. Each card will go down as Fox Sports 1 Fight Nights.

The UFC last visited Atlantic City, N.J. in June of 2012 with UFC on FX 4, which was headlined by lightweights Clay Guida and Gray Maynard at the new Revel Casino Hotel. The July 16 date will also take place at the Revel's Ovation Hall.

Meanwhile, though the UFC was in Oklahoma City five years ago in 2009, the promotion hasn't been to Tulsa since the pre-Zuffa days of 1994. The August 23 date is slated to take place at the BOK Center in downtown Tulsa, which has a seating capacity of over 19,000.

Tickets for the Atlantic City event go on sale on May 30.
