The UFC will make its third straight March appearance at
the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio on March 7, 2009 with UFC 96. The first
time there the UFC set a record for most paying fans at an MMA event with about
19,000 fans, eclipsing the mark held by Strikeforce.
That mark has since fallen to their event in Montreal,
Quebec, Canada. Tickets will go on sale on December 27, the same day of UFC 92 The
Ultimate. No main event or potential match-ups were announced in the UFC press
