UFC 136 Adds Darren Elkins-Tiequan Zhang Bout

UFC 136: Edgar vs. Maynard III has added a featherweight bout between Darren Elkins and Tiequan Zhang to the undercard.

UFC 136 takes place October 8 from the Toyota Center in Houston.

“China’s best prospect, Tiequan Zhang, makes his return to the Octagon versus the always-tough Darren Elkins at UFC 136,” UFC President Dana White said.

Elkins (12-2) returns after earning a controversial decision win over Michihiro Omigawa at UFC 131. Zhang (13-1) earned a win in his UFC debut.

Along with the Frankie Edgar-Gray Maynard lightweight title fight, a featherweight championship match between Jose Aldo and Kenny Florian will also be on the card.
