The UFC has announced they will be returning to Dallas next year.

UFC 171 is scheduled to take place at the American Airlines Center on March 15, with a headliner still to be announced. While nothing is official, UFC president Dana White did say that a Georges St-Pierre vs Johny Hendricks rematch would make sense; that is, unless GSP decides to retire.

The UFC’s last event in Dallas was UFC 103 all the way back in 2009. It featured Vitor Belfort and Rich Franklin in the main event.
