Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports
The UFC will return to Japan in September 26th, and will feature a couple of familiar faces in the main event at the Saitama Super Arena. Josh Barnett, a staple of Pride FC, will face off with one of the headliners the last time the Octagon was in Japan, Roy Nelson. The two men were coaches of a TUF-like reality show leading up to the event. The co-main event will see late replacement Uriah Hall taking on Gegard Mousasi. The rest of the card is littered with Japanese fighters, including Kyoji Horiguchi's first bout since his title shot. It will also include the Road to UFC: Japan featherweight final.
