Despite what he calls extreme opposition, and despite the recent headaches caused by the country's top fight executives meddling in Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic's relationship with the organization, Dana White said the Ultimate Fighting Championship is heading to Japan.

To date the organization has hosted just four events in the country, the most recent of which was "UFC 29: Defense of the Belts," held in Tokyo eight-and-a-half years ago.

Although "dirty, sneaky, bad guys in Japan" allegedly don't want him there, White said they'll need "to kill me" to keep him out.

Wasnt Pride suspected to be in connection with the Yakuza? if that is true than I wouldn't want to be Dana after saying they will need to kill him to keep him out of Japan
