I think this is British for “Your spotted dick jokes are original and clever, sir”.
When it was first announced that UFC 138 was going to be headlined by Leben vs. Munoz, we had our doubts about the card. Unless your last name is “Silva”, “Okami”, “Stann” or “Sonnen”, there isn’t really a reason to be excited about the winner of that fight getting a title shot. Fortunately, even without a compelling main event, there should still be some pretty interesting fights on this card. It also helps that it will air on Spike TV, meaning that you won’t have to pay extra to watch it. And, for what it’s worth, Ariel Helwani is reporting that Leben vs. Munoz will be the first five round, non-title main event.
The UFC recently announced the addition of a welterweight fight between John Hathaway and Pascal Krauss to the card. A Brighton, England native, Hathaway is 5-1 in the UFC. His most recent outing at UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis saw him pick up a split decision victory over Kris McCray. Undefeated in ten professional fights, Pascal Krauss is looking to build on the momentum he gained in his UFC debut, a unanimous decision victory over Mark Scanlon at UFC 122 which earned him Fight of the Night honors. That fight also marked the first time that Krauss has ever seen the third round in his professional career.
A lightweight tilt between Paul Taylor and Anthony Njokuani has also been added to the card. The Walsall, England native will try to build up more momentum after knocking out Gabe Reudiger at UFC 126 in February. Likewise, Njokuani is coming off of a unanimous decision over Andre Winner at UFC 132 earlier this month. Combined, these two account for seven end of the night awards, including four Fight of the Night honors. Expect this one to make the main card.
