UFC 136 is official.
UFC 136 “Edgar vs. Maynard 3″ is scheduled to take place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on Saturday, October 8, and will air live on pay-per-view at 9pm ET/6pm PT.
The card will be co-headlined by a lightweight title fight between champion Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard and a featherweight title fight between Jose Aldo and Kenny Florian.
“Frankie and Gray had a Fight of the Year candidate the last time they met and I expect nothing different this time around in Houston,” UFC President Dana White said. “Both guys truly believe they won the last fight and the wait for their third fight is over. On Oct. 8, neither of these guys plans on leaving it to the judges.
“Aldo’s been running through guys at 145-pounds, but Florian is the most experienced guy he’s ever fought,” White continued. “Kenny looked really sharp against Diego Nunes in his last fight and Diego is a guy who trains with Aldo. I think Kenny is out to prove that he can get over the hump and win his first UFC world title.”
Other match-ups announced for the card include Chael Sonnen vs. Brian Stann, Dave Herman vs. Mike Russow and Joe Lauzon vs. Melvin Guillard.
