Middleweights Aaron Simpson and Nick Catone are the latest match-up announced for the upcoming UFC 136 fight card in Houston.

UFC officials announced the new bout on Monday.

Aaron Simpson, just off a win at UFC 132 over Brad Tavares, will look to make it three in a row when he takes on fellow wrestler NIck Catone in October.

A former NCAA All-American, Simpson also defeated Mario Miranda back in March and hopes to make 2011 a great year with three victories in the UFC.

Hoping to stop that streak for Simpson will be New Jersey fighter Nick Catone who is also riding a 2 fight win streak. Catone picked up wins over Constantinos Phillipou and Jesse Forbes to bring his UFC record to 3-2 overall.

The bout between Simpson and Catone will serve as part of the undercard for the show taking place in Houston on Oct 8.
