PRIDE, Affliction and Sengoku veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (17-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will likely make his debut for the UFC at the organization's Nov. 21 event in Manchester, England, according to a new report from Fighter's Only magazine.

Though not officially announced, UFC 105 is expected to take place at Manchester Evening News Arena.

A potential opponent for Nogueira has yet to be named.

The twin brother of UFC heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, "Minotoro" is currently riding a five-fight win streak. Rogerio was in Portland, Ore., this past weekend to watch his brother's main-event bout with Randy Couture.

Ed Soares, manger for both Nogueira brothers, told (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps |

With the addition to the card, UFC 105's rumored card which currently lacks a main event includes:

    * Michael Bisping vs. Denis Kang*
    * Dan Hardy vs. Dong Hyun Kim*
    * Matt Brown vs. James Wilks*
    * Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. TBA*
    * Terry Etim vs. TBA*
    * Ross Pearson vs. Aaron Riley*
    * DaMarques Johnson vs. Peter Sobotta*
    * Roli Delgado vs. Andre Winner*
