UFC 138: "Leben vs. Munoz" was recently announced for the promotion's return trip to the United Kingdom (UK) for the LG Arena at the National Exhibition Centre on Nov. 5 in Birmingham, England.

And what would a UK fight card be without a couple of Brits there to represent it?

Fighters Only today (July 21) brought word of a pair of exciting bouts currently in the works for the Spike TV event, featuring featherweight fisticuffs between Michihiro Omigawa and Jason Young as well as a lightweight scrap between Terry Etim and Edward Faaloloto.

After assembling a five-fight win streak on the Japanese circuit, Omigawa (12-10-1) is in dire need of a win after falling into an 0-2 hole following his Zuffa return earlier this year.

Young (8-4) was also unsuccessful his last time out, getting knocked around by Dustin Poirier en route to a unanimous decision loss at UFC 131 in his Octagon debut just last month.

Expect a sense of urgency from both combatants come fight night.

Also getting his feet wet across the pond is Terry Etim (14-3), who returns to the cage after suffering a submission loss to Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 112 way back in April 2010. His defeat to the Brazilain jiu-jitsu wizard snapped a four-fight win streak.

Opposing him is Edward Faaloloto (2-2), whose UFC career is on life support after dropping a pair of bouts to Anthony Njokuani and Michael Johnson, respectively. Both defeats came via technical knockout.

Simply put, it's win or go home.

UFC 138, recently announced for the promotion's sole trip to the United Kingdom this year, will be headlined by the very first five-round non-title fight with a middleweight match-up pitting division hopefuls Chris Leben and Mark Munoz in what should be a violent war of attrition.

In addition, Thiago Alves will make his return to action against Swedish newcomer Papy Abedi in welterweight action.
