The Ultimate Fighting Championship returned to Japan for UFC 144: Edgar vs. Henderson this past February. It marked the promotion’s first event in Japan in more than a decade.

It appears the UFC is ready to return, already planning for another date at the Saitama Super Arena in 2013, according to NikkanSports.com.

MMAWeekly.com sources indicate that March 3 is the date that officials are circling on the calendar.

I think this is East, plants are west.


Edit: Plants are north, Tokyo is south.

I'm not a mathemagician or anything.

Shogun vs Machida III as main event with Big Nog vs Mark Hunt co-main (don't care if this doesn't make sense, its for Japanese nostalgia)

then these will get scrapped due to injuries and it will be like Machida vs Evans II and Hunt vs Mir
