Default UFC 138

It’s official. There will be a UFC event in the UK in 2011, and it will be in Birmingham on Nov 5 at the LG Arena. It will not be a Fight Night, but will be UFC 138.

UFC fans can now rejoice after it appeared that, due to programming and venue bookings, there might be a barren year for the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s growing legion of fans on British shores this year.

Although details are yet to be finalized, as regards the main event and the fighters signed for the card, it is understood that it will definitely be UFC 138.

As for possible protagonists at the event, Brad Pickett has been tweeting he has been told he will be fighting in October, but why not push that back one week and have him face the likes of Uriah Faber, or Miguel Torres ?

Along with Michael Bisping, Pickett is arguably the British fighter closest to a title shot in the UFC.

Marshall Zelaznik, UFC UK vice-president, told The Telegraph yesterday: “I’m very happy to announce UFC 138 will be bringing fireworks to Birmingham on November 5. The last time the UFC was in the second city was UFC 89 in October 2008, and we are very happy to be going back there this bonfire night.”

This is going to be free right???? This is probably by far the worst card I've ever seen. If it wasn't for the Leben fight I wouldn't even watch it.

Ya I believe Dana said it would air on SPIKE.. Don't knock the fight yet remember a lot of these guys are gonna fight their hearts out being in their homeland and also to be on a card..

This sucks. I understand wanting to give some local fighters a spot but don't fill the whole card with it. UFC adds 2 new divisions and still can't do a title fight here after more than 3 and a half years? Leben in the main event? off UFC.
