“The Crippler”, Chris Leben (26-7) and the “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” Mark Munoz (11-2) are set to headline UFC 138 in Birmingham, England at the LG Arena as verified today by the UFC.

The bout will set a new precedence for the UFC as the first non-title, five round fight as Dana White had eluded to in recent  interviews. With both men defeating top contenders in the middleweight division the two will look to grasp title contention with a victory in the UK.

The event is expected to air free of charge on Spike TV and will also feature England’s top bantamweight, Brad Pickett (21-4) against undefeated Renan Barao (28 wins 1 nc ).
