The Ultimate Fighting Championship apparently has big plans for February, as promotion president Dana White revealed Tuesday that the organization will attempt to hold two events simultaneously in early-2012.

“When we go to Japan next year, we are going to be putting on a show at the same time in Las Vegas,” White told Dave Meltzer of Yahoo Sports. “We’ll be doing a lot of that in the future.”

The UFC’s return to Japan will take place Feb. 26, 2012, at Saitama Super Arena. While no contests have been officially revealed for the show, the card is expected to be populated with former Pride Fighting Championships stars.

As the event will take place live on Sunday in Saitama, Japan, the show will likely air live during its normal hours of broadcast on Saturday, Feb. 25, in the United States. It is currently unknown if the two simultaneous events will air as a single broadcast or as completely separate shows.

The concept of an organization hosting multiple events simultaneously is not unheard of. Likely the most famous attempt at the practice came in 1986, when the then-World Wrestling Federation promoted the pro-wrestling event “Wrestlemania 2” from three separate venues in California, Illinois and New York.
