UFC 136 will mark the third time that Gray Maynard and Frankie Edgar have met inside the octagon. Last time, out at UFC 125, both fighters slugged it out for a five-round war which ended with a draw.
Edgar and Maynard were expected to meet at UFC 130, but injuries sidelined both fighters until now. Now fans finally get to see the lightweight title fight and get to see the unclogging of the UFC's lightweight division.
Along with Edgar and Maynard, Kenny Florian will challenge Jose Aldo for his featherweight title in the co-main event in Houston.
Florian is making his second appearance at 145 pounds and is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Diego Nunes at UFC 131.
Now Aldo will make his second UFC title defense and his first since UFC 129 when he beat Mark Hominick by unanimous decision.
