Edgar vs. Maynard III at UFC 136 on Oct. 8 in Houston

by Ariel Helwani | source: http://www.mmafighting.com

Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard have verbally agreed to meet for a third time at UFC 136 in Houston, sources close to the event confirmed with MMA Fighting.

The long-awaited trilogy fight was supposed to take place at UFC 130 in May, but a nagging back injury led Edgar to pull out of thebout, while a lingering knee injury sidelined Maynard, thus forcing the UFC to delay the lightweight title

Maynard handed Edgar the only loss of his career in April 2008. They met again in January, this time under different circumstances with Edgar as champion, but the UFC 125 rematch ended in a draw. That fight is considered by many to be the current front-runner for 2011 Fight of the Year.

I predict Edgar will do a lot of circling around the perimeter of the cage, a lot of head wobbling hurky jerky thing, and a lot of jabs, with a few right hands and a couple takedown attempts.
