dennis-siver-ufc-168LAS VEGAS – Dennis Siver (22-9 MMA, 11-6 UFC) may have just put in three rounds of work in a unanimous decision victory over Manny Gamburyan (13-8 MMA, 4-6 UFC), but the only thing on his mind when he made his way backstage after the win on the prelim portion of UFC 168 was when he could get back in the cage.

“I feel very good right now and I’m looking forward to fighting again,” Siver said via a translator. “And, of course, it was fun to win.”

The question is, where does the workmanlike performance put Siver in the UFC’s featherweight division? Although he started out as a lightweight when he made his UFC debut in 2007, the drop to 145 pounds seems to agree with Siver.

Still, he’s been unable to win the big fight that would propel him to a title shot, though that doesn’t mean his career goals have changed.

“My goal is definitely to get a title shot, and I think I belong in the top 10,” Siver said. “My goal is to fight a top 10 fighter in my next fight.”

As for who that might be, Siver isn’t picky.

“No one in particular, but anyone in the top 10 or top five would be great, to prove that I belong with the best,” he said.
