World Extreme Cagefighting will take the spot vacated by the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

MMAjunkie.com first reported on Friday that – after three successful shows beginning in 2007 – the UFC would not return for a fourth show in Columbus, Ohio, that would coincide with the 2010 edition of the Arnold Sports Festival.

On Sunday, following UFC 103, UFC president Dana White spoke to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) and confirmed our earlier report that the WEC will instead take the spot.

Although confirming the plans, White wasn't sure if the show had been officially booked just yet.
