VIDEO: UFC 136 In-Depth Preview Featuring Edgar Vs. Maynard 3

The UFC has released the above in-depth video preview of UFC 136. It focuses on the headlining lightweight title fight between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard, a rubber match sequel to their UFC 125 bout. That fight was one for the ages that saw Maynard very nearly KO the champ in the first round, only to have Edgar survive and thrive in the second. From there they alternated rounds in one of the best back-and-forth fights you'll ever see.

The video also looks at the co-main event on the card, Jose Aldo vs. Kenny Florian for Aldo's UFC featherweight belt. Since becoming the UFC champ, Aldo has defended his belt once at UFC 129. Florian has fought once at 145lbs since moving down from the lightweight division. It ought to be a good one and could help establish Aldo at the superstar level that many feel his talent merits. 

The card will also feature Chael Sonnen vs. Brian Stann in a middleweight title-eliminator, Melvin Guillard vs. Joe Lauzon and Leonard Garcia vs. Nam Phan. replacing Dave Herman vs. Mike Russow due to Herman's apparently failing a drug test.
