Yeah, it’s cold and apparently it might snow this weekend at the Jersey Shore. But c’mon, is that gonna stop anyone from seeing the return of Conor McGregor to the octagon?
You can watch UFC 246 at a variety of NJ sportsbook viewing parties.
Saturday night, the “Notorious” one is headlining UFC 246 and is facing Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. The decade starts with a bang as the card features 12 fights on ESPN+, including Holly Holm.
Start your weekend off with a fun night in Atlantic City and maybe grow your bankroll before the conference championship games. We have your guide for some of the hottest spots in Atlantic City to watch UFC 246.
The Book at Bally’s Wild Wild West
Let’s start with one of the best spots in Midtown and one of the newest books on the Boardwalk. The Book opened in the summer and has quickly become a favorite at one of the most fun venues in AC.
Three massive screens surround the stadium seating and tables around the bar and book make for a perfect UFC 246 viewing party.
- Those individual seats are going for $30, while the four-seat high-top tables are going for $125.
- In the back, VIP seating starts at $150.
Food and beverages are separate from these deals.
Through the Boardwalk revival in the last couple of years, Bally’s has been a mainstay in the heart of the city and kept the course. Wild Wild West is still a great party spot with the mechanical bull, live music, and some of the best food options in town.
Throw in the betting options and it makes for a great laid-back night in the winter.
DraftKings at Resorts AC
Atlantic City’s first casino, Resorts Atlantic City, has paired with the state’s first digital book and created a great space to watch games and wager. DraftKings Sportsbook has become one of the best venues at the Boardwalk’s north end.
You can’t beat the price to watch the fight at the expansive bar. It is FREE.
Looks like Resorts got the memo that the less a customer pays to get in the door, the more they can spend at the bar (or gamble, whatever’s your vice).
- Preferred stadium seating is available for $25 each, while VIP prices start at $50.
Resorts recommend visitors call ahead to reserve seating before Saturday.
William Hill at Ocean Casino Resort
The William Hill Sportsbook has helped establish Ocean Casino Resort as the shining jewel of the north end of the Boardwalk. With an expansive floor plan and plenty of options for players, it’s a great place for big events.
No tickets appear for sale for Saturday’s UFC event. There are plenty of seats at the bar and the stadium seating in the main bowl.
For those who want to go upscale, there’s VIP seating available, along with the Skybox suite that fits up to 10 guests.
Contact resort staff for pricing and options.
Moneyline Book at the Borgata
Since opening on the marina in 2003, Borgata Atlantic City has been the gold standard in AC. By adding the Moneyline Sportsbook last summer, that bar has been raised even higher.
Get there early as it’s free general admission at the Moneyline and the Level One bar next door.
From 9 to 11 P.M., fans can meet Frankie Edgar, the former UFC lightweight champion and NJ native.
Want to reserve seats for the night? Call ahead for details.
Saturday night is going to be a wild night of UFC action.
Call your crew, take the train down, whatever you want. Have fun out there, but wear a warm jacket because it should get windy.
