UFC Set For March Return To Japan

It appears the UFC will return to Japan in just a matter of months, as reported that the promotion is planning a March 3 card from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

After several years away from the country, the UFC held an event in Saitama earlier this year. The main event saw Benson Henderson claim the UFC lightweight title from Frankie Edgar.

The report did not say if the card would be a pay-per-view event, or air on free television via either FX or Fuel TV.
