  • 828 eb UFC 138 Preview Chris Leben Vs Mark Munoz

    Today UFC 138 takes place in the LG Arena in Birmingham, England. We will see Chris “The Crippler” Leben take on Mark “The Pilipino Wrecking Machine” Munoz in a 5 round middleweight battle. As the event is in the UK I will be there personally to se the card unfold, I love seeing live UFC action and cannot wait to see what happens. I will be doing live tweets from the event so make sure you get involved - http://twitter.com/TheMMAReview

    Chris Leben enters this fight with an MMA record of 22-7. Leben is very experienced and always puts on exciting and memorable performances. His last fight was against MMA veteran Wanderlei Silva at UFC 132, Chris won the fight in spectacular fashion with a KO in the first round. This was a great way to bounce back from his loss against Brian Stann at UFC 125 previously. This fight with Munoz today will really help Chris to move close to a title shot if he can score the victory.

    Top class wrestler and middleweight stand-out Mark Munoz (11-2) is currently on a three fight winning streak, with victories against Aaron Simpson, C.B. Dollaway and most recently against BJJ specialist Demian Maia. He his personally one of my favourite up and coming fighters and is on a good run at the moment. Munoz has great wrestling and also packs knockout power in his hands, so if this turns into a brawl which would really suit Leben then we know that Munoz will be able to hold his own.

    I believe that technically Munoz can win this fight, but if he gets drawn into a dog fight with Leben then he could lose his advantage. Chris Leben could score the knockout at any given moment making the fight very unpredictable. We will have to wait and see!
