Tomorrow night (Oct. 8, 2011) in Houston, Texas, fans of mixed martial arts (MMA) will find out who the world's best lightweight is when 155-pound champion Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard collide in the UFC 136 main event.
The question was to be decided back in January at UFC 125, but "The Answer" and "The Bully" fought to a draw in that evening's main event. Tomorrow, they do it all over again. And both have guaranteed that a clear winner will emerge.
The two five-round bouts are are supported by Chael Sonnen taking on Brian Stann with a shot at Anderson Silva on the line, Nam Pham getting a second crack at Leonard Garcia, and lightweight dynamo Melvin Guillard going head to head with Joe Lauzon.
On paper, it's an impressive night of fights. Will it live up to the hype?
