On Monday morning, a middleweight contest between Mike Massenzio and Steve Cantwell was added to the “UFC 136: Edgar vs. Maynard III” lineup. In all, 11 bouts have now been confirmed for the October 8th pay-per-view broadcast.
Both 185-pounders are looking bounce back from defeats. Massenzio has dropped three of his last four fights and was last seen losing to Krzysztof Soszynski at UFC 131.
Cantwell is more than likely fighting for his Octagon life, as he’ll be riding a two-fight losing streak into their matchup. He posted a unanimous decision loss to Cyrille Diabate this past March at “UFC on Versus 3: Sanchez vs. Kampmann.”
The event will feature a pair of championship affairs. Kenny Florian challenges Jose Aldo for his featherweight crown, while lightweight king Frankie Edgar meets Gray Maynard (Pictured) in the night’s featured attraction.
The Toyota Center in Houston, Texas will host the star-studded show.
