Dennis Siver

The UFC 151 fight card featuring a headlining bout between UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and challenger Dan Henderson has started to grow some legs.

The latest bout added to the Sept. 1 event in Las Vegas is a featherweight match-up pitting Dennis Siver against Eddie Yagin. The bout was first reported by Swedish MMA site mmanytt.se.

Siver (20-8) is coming off a successful featherweight debut in the Octagon, having won a unanimous decision over Diego Nunes at UFC on Fuel TV 2 in Sweden.

Siver had been edging towards a lightweight title shot until losing via submission to Donald Cerrone, a loss that helped prompt the move to 145 pounds.

The fight with Siver will be Yagin’s (16-5-1) third start in the UFC. He lost a decision in his Octagon debut to Junior Assuncao last year in Denver, but bounced back with a split decision victory over former featherweight title contender Mark Hominick at UFC 145 in Atlanta.
