Newark again will host a UFC fight card on Saturday, April 18, when Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold headline UFC Fight Night on Fox at the Prudential Center.

But, again, many of the fight week events for the public will take place across the city. (New York is the lone state in the country with a ban on mixed martial arts, so no professional MMA fights can occur here.)

Here's the schedule:

UFC Gym - NYC Soho

277 Canal St., 3rd floor

Scheduled order of workouts: Luke Rockhold, Chris Camozzi, Jacare Souza, Lyoto Machida.

Ultimate Media Day from noon-2 p.m.

Best Buy Theater - Times Square

1515 Broadway

Friday, April 17

The weigh-ins will take place at the Prudential Center in Newark on Friday at 4 p.m. Doors open at 3 p.m. UFC Fight Club members can attend the Q&A with Frankie Edgar at 2 p.m. as well.
