UFC 138 to Air Free on Spike TV

UFC 138 will air on same-day tape-delay with a three-hour time slot starting at 8 p.m. ET, Spike TV announced Monday morning.

The event, taking place Nov. 5 from the LG Arena in Birmingham, England, features middleweight Chris Leben taking on Mark Munoz in the UFC's first five-round, non-title fight.

The other bouts confirmed for the televised card are bantamweights Brad Pickett vs. Renan Barao and lightweights Paul Taylor vs. Anthony Njokuani. Additional bouts will be announced for the main card.

The last time Spike TV aired a full UFC event on the same day was UFC 120 last October, which was also the most recent time the UFC promoted a show in the U.K.

The current UFC 138 card looks like this:
