UFC 138 main event fighters Chris Leben and Mark Muñoz both hit the mark for their middleweight contest, as did all other fighters on the UFC 138 fight card, with the exception of Thiago Alves.
Leben and Muñoz will square off at the top of 2011’s only UFC fight card to be held in the UK, with the winner taking another step toward title contention; English veteran Brad Pickett will take on Brazilian up and comer Renan Bar˜ao in the co-main event.
Alves missed weight for the third time in his UFC career (he was also caught using illegal diuretics to make weight earlier in his tenure with the promotion), tipping the scale one pound heavy for his welterweight fight against UFC newcomer Papy Abedi.
UFC 138: Leben vs. Muñoz will go down tomorrow night, November 5, at the LG Arena in Birmingham, England. FightLine will be back tomorrow with live, ongoing coverage of the event beginning at 12:30pm ET.
