According to a report from, The Ultimate Fighting Championship is planning a return to the “Land Of The Rising Sun” in early 2012.

UFC President Dana White had hoped to return to Japan in 2011 but as it turns out, February 26th, 2012 is a more realistic date for the event according the report.

The last UFC event to take place in Japan was UFC 29, that was eleven years ago.

The Saitama Super Arena is the proposed venue for the event as companies tied to Zuffa in Japan have booked the stadium for the show.

Nothing official has been announced but White mentioned the companies likely return this past weekend at UFC 132 so an annoucement is expected in the future.
