Jesse Holland has the story at

Surging light heavyweight and UFC sophomore Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (18-3) has officially agreed to throw hands with hot-and-cold cage veteran Brandon Vera (11-4) at UFC 109: “Relentless” from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Feb. 6.

Nogueira — the younger (by seven seconds) twin brother of UFC heavyweight contender Rodrigo “Minotauro” — recently agreed to a multi-fight deal with the organization. “Lil' Nog” made his debut a memorable one, stopping fast-rising prospect Luis Cane via technical knockout for the first time in “Banha's” career.

The win was “Minotoro's” sixth straight.
