March of 2011 is set to be an action-packed month, with a third event, UFC Fight Night 24, penciled in for the 26th on Spike TV.

So far no location or fights are scheduled for the event but MMAJunkie have confirmed with sources close to the organization that the event is indeed in the works.

Earlier it was also confirmed that UFC On Versus 3 will air on Thursday, March 3rd, while on the 19th of the month it is anticipated that Abu dhabi will place host to UFC 128.

If so this gives a clear indication of the kind of packed schedule we can expect to see from the UFC in 2011 as they take advantage of their expanded roster thanks to their merger with the WEC.  Dana White stated last month that the promotion expects to hold 30+ events over the course of 2011.

The good news for MMA fans is that two of the three events scheduled for March will be on free TV.
