A pair of featherweight contenders will square off at UFC 154 in Montreal when Steven Siler meets Darren Elkins.

Sources at Siler’s management team, AMR Group, confirmed the fight to MMAWeekly.com on Monday.

Since his time on the Ultimate Fighter season 14, Steven Siler has looked virtually unstoppable in the UFC. Winning his last three fights in a row, Siler has dispatched of Cole Miller and Joey Gambino in his most recent fights.

Facing Siler in Montreal will be Darren Elkins, who looks to extend a three fight win streak of his own when he competes at UFC 154.

Elkins defeated Siler’s former housemate and Ultimate Fighter winner Diego Brandao in his last bout at UFC 146.

Now the two featherweights will meet with a chance to take a big step forward in the 145-pound division.
