UFC 138 Confirmed: Chris Leben vs Mark Munoz Set for Main Event in the UK

Midhun Nair@@MidhunNair_Correspondent IIJuly 19, 2011

Chris Leben and Mark Munoz are set to headline UFC 138 in Birmingham, UK in a middleweight title eliminator bout on Nov. 5.

Dana White confirmed the event to ESPN earlier today.

This will be the first time since October 2010 that the UFC will return to the UK to host an event.

Both fighters are on a tear and are coming off huge wins; Leben has just come off the biggest win of his career, against the legendary Wanderlei Silva at UFC 132, and similarly, Mark Munoz made it known to the world that he is a top contender when he defeated Demian Maia at UFC 131.

This fight is also expected to be the first non-title five round fight, and the first event to implement the new policy that Dana White announced.
