The UFC is painting it black for their upcoming show in Atlantic City, N.J.

Lightweight headliners Edson Barboza and Kevin Lee join featherweight veterans Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson on the stark poster for UFC Atlantic City, which takes place at Boardwalk Hall on April 21:

This will be a home date of sorts for Barboza, a Brazilian striker who trains with Ricardo Almeida and Edgar in New Jersey. Edgar himself hails from nearby Toms River and he will be competing in state for the first time since fighting Spencer Fisher in Newark all the way back at UFC 78 over a decade ago.

For Lee, this will be his first fight since losing an interim title bout to rival Tony Ferguson last October, an outcome that snapped a five-fight win streak.

Swanson is coming off of a loss to Brian Ortega and will be looking for revenge against Edgar, who won their first meeting at UFC Austin in November 2014 by fifth-round submission.
