To help hype next Saturday’s pay-per-view broadcast, the world’s biggest MMA organization has released an extended video preview for “UFC 136: Edgar vs. Maynard III.”

The Toyota Center in Houston, Texas will host arguably the Octagon’s most star-studded event of 2011. The card features a pair of championship affairs, headlined by a lightweight title scrap between champion Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard.

A featherweight shootout with champ Jose Aldo and Kenny Florian will serve as the card’s co-main event.
