A middleweight clash of surging wrestlers has been jettisoned to "Space City," as Aaron Simpson and Nick Catone have been scheduled to hook up at the UFC 136: "Edgar vs. Maynard 3" event on Oct. 8 in Houston, Texas.
The promotion brought word of the pending match-up earlier tonight on its Twitter.
So which pair of names does Nick Catone belong with?
Catone has also won his last two bouts, besting Jesse Forbes and Constantinos Philippou, the latter of which was contested at a 195-pound catchweight.
However, just like Simpson, Catone lost his two fights before that, one of which came to the previously mentioned Munoz.
In fact, both Simpson and Catone started their careers 7-0, lost two straight and rebounded with consecutive wins.
UFC 136 quickly went from barren and potentially boring to a stacked, must-see pay-per-view. The card will be headlined by the third and final fight between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard with Jose Aldo vs. Kenny Florian occupying the co-main event slot.
