The preliminary card match up was announced by the UFC earlier today.
Cariaso, a two-fight veteran of the UFC, debuted against Will Campuzano at “UFC: Fight For The Troops II,” earning a unanimous decision victory. In his second fight, however, he was defeated by Michael McDonald via split decision at UFC 130.
Now, he looks to improve his record to 2-1 against newcomer Lee, who has compiled a record of 11-6-1 throughout his MMA career. Currently on a three-fight winning streak, Lee has displayed his ability to finish fights, having fought to the judges’ scorecards only once.
UFC 138 is set for Birmingham, England on November 5 and features a middleweight main event between Chris Leben and Mark Munoz. The event’s main card will broadcast via same-day tape delay on Spike TV.
