After making its debut in China today, the UFC has announced plans to return to Japan in early 2013. The promotion’s return will come approximately one year after it’s last event in the island nation, as UFC 144 took place on February 26th, 2012.

According to multiple reports, the event will be hosted by the Saitama Super Arena on March 3rd. No information regarding the type of card was included; however, the event will take place on a Saturday night in North America, making the possibility of a pay-per-view event likely.

UFC 144 was the first time the promotion had held an event in Japan since the year 2000, but now the organization hopes to host an event in the nation annually.
