Back in March after a successful UFC event there, Dana White vowed UFC would return to Columbus, Ohio for a UFC event every year. Apparently "every year" won't include 2010-Dana confirmed Thursday that UFC won't return next year. The main reason seems to be expansion and desire to visit new cities. UFC has run 3 Columbus events over the last 3 years.

Nothing's definite yet but it turns out they might get WEC instead. It could be in UFC's usual March slot that usually coincides with the Arnold Sports Festival.
