UFC Middleweight Mark Munoz

Although “UFC 138: Leben vs. Munoz” has yet to be added to the company’s official website, countless Twitter updates over the last couple of weeks have filled out the roster nicely. Thus far, 11 bouts have been announced for the November 5th show inside the LG Arena in Birmingham, England.

The card will be headlined by a pivotal middleweight shootout between Chris Leben and Mark Munoz (Pictured). Former welterweight top contender Thiago Alves will roll out the welcome wagon for Octagon rookie Papy Abedi in the night’s co-featured contest.

It’s possible this could be the show’s complete lineup, but the UFC has recently picked up the fantastic habit of offering 12 fights per event.

For North Americans, UFC 138 will be made available via same-day tape-delay on Spike TV at 8PM ET/PT.  Rogers Sportsnet will air the freebie fight card in Canada.
