UFC 138 Weigh-in Results and Reaction: Chris Leben vs. Mark Munoz
Now entering November, the UFC will be making their first appearance in the U.K. this year with UFC 138.
The card will feature the first non-title fight five-round affair, between Mark Munoz and the hard-headed Chris Leben.
Leben is coming off of a huge knockout victory over MMA legend Wanderlei Silva at UFC 132 in July, while Munoz is coming off a big win over former top middleweight contender, and grappling ace Demian Maia.
Both fighters will bring it for the U.K. fans on what is one of the less stellar cards of the year which many have already written off as one of the most forgettable cards in UFC history.
Of course, however, until the event is completed, it is only a prediction.
Also on the card is a clash between top bantamweights Brad Pickett and Renan Barao in what could end up giving Munoz and Leben a run for their money when it comes to the "Fight of the Night" bonus.
UFC 138 will also feature the return of Thiago Alves, who at UFC 130, lost to underdog Rick Story and will now face yet another underdog—UFC newcomer Papy Abedi.
The card will be free on Spike here in the United States and will broadcast the entire undercard for free on Facebook.

Thiago Alves will be given extra time to cut weight as he missed weight by one pound. If he can not make weight, the bout may end up being a catchweight fight at "Rumbleweight".
Alves the last two times out has been able to make weight, but I guess for this third time it was too much to ask from the lifelong welterweight.
This is yet again another sign that Alves has too many troubles cutting weight to actually stay at welterweight, but the sad fact is if he went to middleweight it wouldn't be pretty for the former No. 1 contender.
