UFC To host an event from Japan…This year?

UFC president Dana White today said that plans are moving forward for for the organization to promote a show in the country, which hasn't hosted a UFC event since UFC 29 way back in 2000. "The rumor is true," said White, who couldn't given any exact details on a date or host venue. "We're going to come to Japan, and probably soon." Just how soon? "This year," he said. White and other officials have long teased the possibility of an upcoming show in Japan, where four pre-Zuffa LLC events took place in Tokyo (twice), Chiba and Yokohama more than a decade ago.
