UFC 138: Mark Scanlon Out, John Maguire Debuts Against James Head on Nov. 5

Mark Scanlon has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled UFC 138 fight against James Head, but fellow English welterweight John Maguire has stepped in to make his Octagon debut against Head on the preliminary card of the November 5 event in Birmhingham, England, MMAjunkie reports.

Maguire (16-3) has won his last five fights, including a notable win over TUF 9’s Dean Amasinger, to push his record to 16-3, while Head (7-2) dropped his UFC debut to Nick Ring in June after upsetting UFC vet Gerald Harris in his previous bout in February.

UFC 138 airs via tape-delay on Spike TV and is headlined by the first five-round non-title fight between middleweights Chris Leben and Mark Munoz.
