UFC is Heading to Japan in 2013


The UFC will be making an impact in Japan next year, as NikkanSports is reporting that four events will take place in the country. The cards will be based around Japanese fighters, according to the report.

The events will not be part of the UFC's typical numbering system, and are slated for venues that host upwards of 5,000 people.

Earlier this year, the UFC returned to Japan for UFC 144. The card drew 20,000 people to the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Thanks to AsianMMA for transcribing the report.
