It’s time for UFC 138 on Spike TV, and we’re here because we’re here. Get it, that works because…you know what, just Google it if you don’t get it. We can’t give you all of the answers, after all. Weekend editor Seth Falvo is handling tonight’s liveblog duties, so let’s just get it started. Hit “refresh” early and often.
Tonight marks the UFC’s first time experimenting with five round non-title main event fights. Joe Rogan doesn’t appear to think that tonight’s main event, Leben vs. Munoz, will go the full five rounds. Do you think he’s right about that? Resist the urge to Google the results before answering that.
Terry Etim vs. Edward Faaloloto
Round One: They touch gloves, and begin swinging. Terry throws a spinning back kick, and Edward Faaloloto shoots for a takedown. Etim catches Edward in a tight guillotine, and gets the tap. Wow. Terry Etim def. Edward Faaloloto via submission (guillotine choke) – Round 1, 0:17
