UFC 136: Edgar vs. Maynard III was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on October 9, 2011 (aus time) at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
The event coincided with a two day UFC Fan Expo held at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
UFC 136 featured two title fights with Frankie Edgar facing Gray Maynard in a battle for the UFC lightweight championship and Kenny Florian challenging Jose Aldo for the featherweight title. Both title holders held on to their belts.
The event was also notable for Chael Sonnen aggressively calling out Anderson Silva to fight him after his defeat over Brian Stann. Still in the ring with Joe Rogan, Sonnen said “Anderson Silva, you absolutely suck. Superbowl weekend, the biggest rematch in the history of the business. I’m calling you out, Silva, but we’re upping the stakes. I beat you, you leave the division. You beat me, I will leave the UFC forever.”
