Pride is dead but not forgotten.  The venerable Japanese promotion committed "sepaku" shortly after its purchase by Zuffa, to the dismay of many fight fans, but there's good news on the horizon.  The UFC is planning on returning to Japan later this year, according to UFC president Dana White.

The last time the UFC took place in Japan was way back in 2000 at UFC 29.  So Japanese MMA fans are probably very excited about this news, and I'm sure the card will be stacked with Japanese talent. At Thursday's press conference, Dana White confirmed the rumors:


We're going to come to Japan, and probably very soon.


Domo arigato, Mr. White!
