UFC 138 RESULTS: Mark Munoz Busts Open Chris Leben, Renan Barao Chokes Out Brad Pickett in the UK on Spike TV - 11/5/11

UFC 138: LEBEN VS MUNOZ was held Saturday, November 5, 2011, at the LG Arena in Birmingham, England, United Kingdom. The main card aired via tape delay on Spike TV. The undercard streamed live on the UFC's official Facebook page.

The main event, which was the first non-title 5-round fight in the history of the UFC, ended up being called after the second round. Chris "The Crippler" Leben's corner threw in the towel after Leben informed them that he was unable to see out of his eye, which had been busted open by Mark "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" Munoz. For 10 minutes, both middleweight fighters delivered on their promise of throwing bombs. It was Leben, however, who suffered the most collateral damage.

MMA ATTACK 1 RESULTS: Michal Kita, Tomasz Drwal and Damian Grabowski Win in Warsaw, Poland - 11/5/11

The inaugural MMA ATTACK was held Saturday, November 5, 2011, at the Torwar Hall in Warsaw, Poland.

In the MMA main event, Polish heavyweight Michal "Masakra" Kita won a unanimous decision over former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco "Suave" Rodriguez. Unable to take Kita to the mat and getting outpointed on the feet, Rodriguez reverted to flopping and attempting to pull guard. Kita was having none of it, and won a clear-cut decision.

Former UFC middleweight Tomasz "Gorilla" Drwal spent a passive-aggressive 10 minutes with Gary Padilla. After a round-plus of light sparring between the two former teammates, a firefight broke out for the last two minutes of the fight. Both fighters threw wildly, with Drawl taunting and getting the better of Padilla with strikes.

PROELITE 2 RESULTS: Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski Attempt to Cure Insomnia in Moline, Illinois on HDNet - 11/5/11

PROELITE 2: BIG GUNS was held Saturday, November 5, 2011, at the i Wireless Center in Moline, IL. The event featured the quarterfinals of the ProElite Heavyweight Grand Prix.

In non-tournament heavyweight bouts, former UFC champions Tim "The Maine-iac" Sylvia and Andrei "The Pit Bull" Arlovski won bowling shoe ugly fights over seemingly uninspired big men Andreas "Big Daddy" Kraniotakes and Travis "The Ironman" Fulton.

Tim Sylvia won an incredibly boring unanimous decision over Andreas Kraniotakes in the main event, while Arlovski didn't come alive until there was one second left in his co-main event fight with Travis Fulton. Arlovski landed a picture-perfect headkick that knocked Fulton unconscious with just a single tick left on the time clock.
