Easy come, easy go.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has scrapped plans to return to Indiana, cancelling its UFC on FX 5 event for the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Sept. 7, 2012, according to a report from ESPN.com.

The news comes just two days before UFC on FX 5 tickets were expected to go on sale.

The promotion made its first trip to the "Hoosier State" with UFC 119 back in Sept. 2010, featuring a putrid main event between Frank Mir and Mirko Filipovic. Retired fighter and political hopeful Chris Lytle was also on the card, exacting revenge on Matt Serra.

UFC 119 drew $1,588,163 from 15,811 mixed martial arts (MMA) fans in attendance.

The good news is, the show must go on, and UFC on FX 5 is now being considered for Oct. 5 at a location to be named. No potential fights, save for Bart Palaszewski vs. Diego Nunes, have been announced; however, keep it locked in to MMAmania.com for all the relevant details as soon as they become available.
