Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will return to the "Garden State" for the first time in more than two years when it storms the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., on March 27, 2010.

Several reports pegged the rumored pay-per-view (PPV) event to take place much earlier in the month; however, The Daily Telegraph has been able to nail down the precise date. The promotion, meanwhile, has yet to make an official announcement regarding the show.

UFC 111 (or now 112 because of it being so late in the month) is expected to feature a main event between welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, defending his 170-pound title against number one contender, Dan Hardy. Expect several other New Jersey-area fighters, including Frank Edgar, Dan Miller, Jim Miller, Ricardo Almeida and Renzo Gracie, among others, to compete on the card.

"Validation" on Nov. 17, 2007, is the last event to be held at the 18,500-seat New Jersey venue. Rashad Evans battled Michael Bisping for three rounds to earn a split decision in the featured fight of the night.
