UFC 138 places from the LG Arena in Birmingham, England. The main card airs on tape delay on Spike TV at 9PM ET. Here are three picks to consider for tonight’s card.

UFC Middleweight Bout – Chris Leben (22-7) vs Mark Munoz (11-2)

This is a tough fight to call, but I actually like the underdog in this contest. Chris Leben is a tough opponent for anyone because he has a never-say-die mindset and always keeps coming. He also has faced tougher competition than Munoz and knows how to win when facing adversity. I expect Munoz to have success early on, but tire as the fight goes into the later rounds. I see Leben landing some big punches late to earn a TKO upset. . FREE PICK – Chris Leben +205

UFC Bantamweight Bout – Brad Pickett (21-4) vs. Renan Barao (28-1)

Barao hasn’t lost since 2005, but he also hasn’t faced the type of talent he will see in Pickett. Picket will push a tireless pace and be willing to mix it up wherever the fight goes. Pickett might look like the worse for wear when the fight is done, but I look for him to have done enough to win a decision in the mind of the judges. FREE PICK – Brad Picket +100
