The UFC 139: "Shogun vs. Henderson" fight card, which takes place this coming Nov. 19, 2011, at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California, looks like it's complete.

That's because the promotion recently announced the addition of a lightweight scrap pitting Shamar Bailey against Danny Castillo.

After participating in season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), Bailey made his Octagon debut at the Finale against Ryan McGillivray, bringing home a unanimous decision win. He would drop down to lightweight for his next fight and got handled by Evan Dunham.

Castillo, meanwhile, impressed in his first UFC bout after making the jump from the WEC, blowing past Joe Stevenson on his way out of the world's largest fight promotion. He was painfully driven back down to Earth by Jacob Volkmann, though, and needs a win to keep pace in the stacked 155-pound weight class.

UFC 139 will feature Mauricio Rua continuing his quest to get back to the light heavyweight title with a 205-pound shootout against Strikeforce champion Dan Henderson. Wanderlei Silva will make perhaps his last stand in the co-main event against Cung Le.

Check out the complete fight card after the jump.
