Nogueira-Cane slated for UFC 105

by Loretta Hunt | source:

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is set make his Octagon debut against Luis Arthur Cane in a light heavyweight bout at UFC 105 on Nov. 14 in Manchester, England, according to multiple sources close to the negotiations.

Sources said the Brazilian pair have verbally agreed to the bout and are awaiting written agreements.

Noguiera, the twin brother of former UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo, is on a five-fight win streak and submitted Dion Staring with a third-round triangle choke in his last outing for Jungle Fight in May. The 33-year-old Nogueira also appeared in Affliction’s two U.S. events, earning technical knockouts over Edwin Dewees and Vladimir Matyushenko.

I guess I'm in the minority but I was really hoping that Cane would matchup against Brandon Vera. Perhaps the timing was bad but I think that would've been the matchup to bring Brandon out of his shell.

Awesome. LHW div is pretty deep but Rogerio is a long time omission and someone who adds a real twist to the div with this clean, technical boxing and BJJ. As a tall lanky guy, his game is like Anderson's, his brothers, the Diaz brothers, Torres. Rog schooling Henderson is one of the most forgotten major results on here. A lot of people seem to overlook or forgot how bad Dan looked that night. The only other major LHW missing from UFC is now Arona.
