UFC 138 really shaping up

...to be terrible!

I'm by no means one of those dopes that sees a card filled with names I'm not familiar with and then starts whining about how it'll be the worst card ever, but this one is just not looking good so far:

UFC 138: Leben vs. Munoz

-Chris Leben (26-7) vs. Mark Munoz (11-2)

-Brad Pickett (20-5) vs. Renan Barão (26-1)

-Thiago Alves (18-8) vs. Papy Abedi (8-0)

-Anthony Njokuani (14-5) vs. Paul Taylor (11-6-1)

-Michihiro Omigawa (12-10) vs. Jason Young (8-4)

-Terry Etim (14-3) vs. Edward Faaloloto (2-2)

-Mark Scanlon (7-1) vs. James Head (7-2)

-Vaughn Lee (11-6-1) vs. Chris Cariaso (11-3)

-Phil De Fries (7-0-0) vs. Oli Thompson (9-2)

-Che Mills (13-4) vs. Chris Cope (5-1)

Pickett vs. Barão? Okay, I'm interested. Njokuani vs. Taylor? **** yeah! Rest of the card? Not even moderately interesting to me.

Yeah, that's lookin pretty rough. Is this a freebie? If not I might be skipping my first PPV since 72

They are depending on Leben to sell the entire show. There is literaly nobody else on that card. Pitbull is the only other "name" and he is nothing like he used to be.

It could always turn out to be a good show but nothing to sell tickets for sure.

It´s in England which means Spike on tape delay. Europe hasn´t gotten a decent card since UFC 99
