Unheralded but tough lightweights Terry Etim (13-2) and Shannon Gugerty (12-3) are penciled in to throw leather in a 155-pound match up at UFC 105 from the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena in Manchester, England, on Nov. 14, according to Fighter’s Only magazine.

Etim has looked sharp in his three most recent performances inside the Octagon, submitting Justin Buchholz with a brabo choke at UFC 99: "The Comeback," knocking Brian Cobb senseless with a head kick at UFC 95: "Sanchez vs. Stevenson" and outpointing Sam Stout on all three judges scorecards at UFC 89: "Bisping vs. Leben."

The British product typically competes whenever the promotion ventures overseas. And he's delivered the goods more often than not, winning four of six contests within the eight-sided cage since 2007.

He'll look to make it four straight and five of his last seven when he locks horns with the City Boxing disciple. But don't let the gym moniker fool you -- Gugerty is fond of submissions. In fact, 75 percent of his 12 career wins have come by way of tapout.

Matt Grice was his most recent victim, succumbing to a first round guillotine choke at UFC 100: "Lesnar vs. Mir 2" back in July. Gugerty has just one loss since 2006 courtesy of a Spencer Fisher triangle choke at UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote" late last year.

He made his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 14: "Silva vs. Irvin," submitting fellow newcomer Dale Hartt with a rear naked choke in round one.

UFC 105 has yet to be officially announced by the promotion; however, hometown hero Michael "The Count" Bisping is expected to compete in the co-main event opposite Denis Kang. To check out the latest fight card and rumors click here.
