UFC 138 Bleacher Report MMA Staff Predictions

UFC 138 goes down on Saturday, with the world's premiere fight league heading to Birmingham, England for just the second time in UFC history.  

The first time was UFC 89, where oddly enough, Chris Leben fought in the main event.  

While he lost to Michael Bisping back then, "The Crippler" hopes to continue to pave his road for another title shot by taking out "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" Mark Munoz in a headliner that promises fireworks. 

The co-main event features an under the radar British fighter in Brad "One Punch" Pickett, as he takes on rising Brazilian Jiu Jitsu star Renan Barao, who hasn't lost a fight since 2005.  

Thiago Alves has looked lackluster since working his way up to a welterweight title shot in 2009, but he looks to regain his dominance in the division when he takes on the undefeated Papi Abedi, who is making his UFC debut.  

Liverpool England's own Terry Etim looks to take out Eddie Faaloloto in a lightweight bout, while two veteran heavyweights in Cyrille Diabate and Anthony Perosh square off in the first bout on the main card.  

Bleacher Report MMA Featured Columnist Dwight Wakabayashi, Jordy McElroy, Dale De Souza and myself, John Heinis are here to tell you who wins on Saturday. 

Take a look inside for the fight by fight breakdown.
