Rogerio Nogueira Could Debut At UFC 105 In Manchester


From Fighter's Only:

Rogerio Nogueira (17-3) – a light-heavyweight fighter who fought for PRIDE FC in the past – is about to sign up with UFC and will debut on November 14th at UFC 105 in Manchester, England.

“The UFC didn’t confirm yet (the contract) but Dana White welcomed me,” said the talented fighter at UFC 102 post-event conference. “I hope everything goes well here. I hope to do a good job and show good fights. It’s important for me being around here with my brother. If I’m here it will be an excellent opportunity for my career”.

According to sources close to “Lil Nog”, the Brazilian will make his debut for the organisation at UFC 105. Apparently the UFC also wants him to fight for the title as soon as possible.
