Report: Terry Etim vs. Edward Faaloloto Added to UFC 138

via i52.tinypic.com

It's been quite a while since we've seen Terry Etim in the Octagon. The lanky Brit, who's a double threat with his pinpoint kickboxing and powerful submissions hasn't fought since April 2010 and it will be over a year and half out of action for the Liverpudlian when he faces off with Hawaiian, Edward Faaloloto at UFC 138 this November. Fighters Only reports that the two have verbally agreed to the lightweight bout:

The popular lightweight, who has been plagued with random training injuries since his last fight in April 2010, will return at UFC 138, Fighters Only has been told. His opponent is Edward ‘Falo’ Faaloloto, who sports a 2-2 record and is going to have to pull something incredible out of the bag to beat Etim. Verbal agreements are in place for the fight and paperwork is expected to be completed soon.

Some may argue that this is a "tune-up" fight for Etim, since the Chris Leben-trained Faaloloto has only four career fights, and has decisively lost both of his fights that were contested under the Zuffa banner, but almost two years' worth of ring rust is not something for Etim to take lightly.
