UFC 138 will air live on Spike TV from Birmingham, England. John Hathaway has been bumped from the card because of an undisclosed injury. Eddie Faaloloto vs. Terry Etim was bumped up into the main event due to the injuries of the other fighters. This free event will be on November 5, 2011 one week before MMA fans get the chance to watch Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos live on Fox TV.

Main card:


Chris Leben
(22-7) vs. Mark Munoz (11-2) The main event should be a good one. Chris Leben has that punch that can knock anybody out and Mark Munoz is on a roll. Both fighters have a ton of power and look to knock each other’s head off. This fight should be fun to watch.

Renan Barao (26-1) vs. Brad Pickett (20-5) Both of these fighters are unknown to me. This will be Barao’s second fight in the UFC and Brad Pickett comes from the WEC. Hope this is a great fight.

Papy Abedi (8-0) vs. Thiago Alves (18-8) Alves has lost three out of four and Papy Abedi is making his pro debut. Alves has the experience advantage, but we will see what this Abedi kid can do at UFC 138

Anthony Njokuani (14-5) vs. Paul Taylor (11-6-1, 1 NC) Paul Taylor’s career has been up and down in the UFC. Here is his chance to take a step up or fall down into preliminary fights.

Eddie Faaloloto (5-2) vs. Terry Etim (17-3) This replacement fight should be interesting. Terry Etim is tough and Eddie Faaloloto wants to make his mark in the UFC. Etim has the experience advantage and will likely control this fight, we shall see.

Preliminary card:

Terry Etim (14-3) vs. Edward Faaloloto (2-2)

Cyrille Diabate (17-7-1) vs. Anthony Perosh (11-6)

Michihiro Omigawa (12-10-1) vs. Jason Young (8-4)

Philip De Fries (7-0) vs.Rob Broughton (15-6-1)

Chris Cope (5-1) vs. Che Mills (13-4)

Chris Cariaso (11-3) vs. Vaughan Lee (11-6-1)

Justin Edwards (7-1) vs. John Maguire (16-3)

Dana White gives us a treat at UFC 138. We get to watch it free on Spike TV. The fights should be interesting enough to wet our appetites for UFC on Fox TV where Cain Valasquez will defend his UFC Heavyweight Title against Junior dos Santos. This event will be called No Mercy and will be aired on Fox TV for free on November 12, 2011. Enjoy UFC 138 free on Spike TV on November 5, 2011 via tape delay from England.
