The UFC is likely to return to the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio on March 7, 2009, according to Cleveland.com.
The event, tentatively UFC 96, would be the promotion’s fourth in the state since March 2007, including three in Columbus. UFC 82, which featured Anderson Silva’s successful title defense over Dan Henderson, took place at the arena in March and UFC 68, featuring the return of Randy Couture to defeat Tim Sylvia, took place in Columbus last March.
As has been the case for the past two years, the event coincides with the Arnold Classic, an annual sports festival in the city which features a bodybuilding competition as well as a variety of sports including boxing and martial arts.
