The official weigh-ins for UFC 136, an event that is shaping up to be perhaps the best card of the year, will be held today at 5 p.m. ET at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
In an event with two title fights, there are some other bouts on the card that very likely could steal the show from either one of the main events.
Chael Sonnen is set to go up against war veteran Brian Stann. Many people have Stann losing this fight, but he doesn't see it that way. Sonnen has uncharacteristically had only positive things to say about Stann and is anticipating a tough fight on Saturday night.
UFC featherweight champion José Aldo is set to go up against Kenny Florian, who is in only his second fight at featherweight. It's sure to be a fight that demonstrates an incredible pace and is likely to go all over the cage.
In their third bout, UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will try to finally defeat the only man to have a win over him in Gray Maynard. "The Bully" will look to walk away with the belt that he thinks is his, and will likely be looking to put Edgar away rather than go to decision.
Stay tuned for a complete analysis of each weigh-in at 5 p.m ET.
