It’s the new boxing, the new wrestling, the new martial arts form and its popularity has never been higher.
Mixed Martial Arts returns to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa August 9 when Cage Fury Fighting Championship presents three, count’em three action-packed title fights.
Of course, hardcore MMA fans know that the mixing of boxing, grappling and martial arts styles you see in an MMA fight isn’t new at all. The form has actually been around since the early 1900s.
But it was in the 2000s that MMA really took off in the U.S. setting attendance and viewership records that rival and even beat the greatest prize fights in history. Put simply, MMA offers up the baddest fighters and the most action-packed bouts anywhere.
Today’s MMA champions mix lightning-fast punches, kicks, knees and elbows, with superb wrestling and grappling skills. They’re capable of knocking out an opponent with a single strike or choking him until he taps or loses consciousness.
Atlantic City and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa have been at the cutting edge of the MMA explosion, especially when Borgata teamed with Cage Fury Fighting Championships, the nation’s No. 1 regional MMA promotion which has a long history of presenting MMA fights in Atlantic City.
We’ve been introducing you to Borgata Nightlife’s stellar line-up of DJs and today we turn to one of the most versatile open-format DJs in the country: DJ Politik, regularly seen at mur.mur at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
Politik was born and raised in Los Angeles and is known for his energetic, eclectic, and tasteful style of spinning records and is a go-to DJ for anyone looking for the perfect balance of top-40, hip-hop, house, indie dance, rock, pop & classics.
DJ Politik, the son of a successful Russian pop singer has been in the studio with his mom since an early age and took up DJIng in the ‘90s. At just 16, he began working in Hollywood and cites DJ AM, Samantha Ronson, StoneRokk, Adam 12, and DJ Vice as major influences on his style.
He now holds local residencies in L.A., Las Vegas, New York, Miami, Chicago and here in Atlantic City.
In the culinary world, few chefs need less of an introduction than Geoffrey Zakarian.
He’s an Iron Chef, a TV star, an author and an executive chef at several restaurants around the country in New York, Miami and most importantly at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
You may know Chef Zakarian from his work on the Food Network shows “Chopped“, “The Next Iron Chef”, “Super Chefs“(which he won) and “The Best Thing I Ever Ate“, to name just a few of his shows. But we here at Borgata know him as the Culinary Lifestyle Consultant for Borgata’s signature hotel, The Water Club.
Yes, chefs like Zakarian get cool titles and you can usually check out his modern American cuisine by staying at The Water Club and ordering from the in-house menu or visiting The Water Club’s lobby lounge Sunroom.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa offers the best getaway options in Atlantic City and one of the best ways to take advantage is through our special hotel packages.

Most fruits are good. Some are very good and some … well, they are simply super.
Yes, nutritionists and doctors will tell you that not all fruit is created equal. Certain fruits are so chocked full of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and other nutrients that they can help you live longer, look better and even prevent disease.
And they’ve been dubbed the super fruits.
These special fruits boost immune systems and energy and many have a profound effect on the skin and counter the effects of aging.
