Dennis Siver UFC Fight Night 21UFC on Fuel TV 2 on Saturday marked the featherweight debut of Russian-born German fighter Dennis Siver. It took a lot of work, but he eventually earned the nod over a very tough Diego Nunes.

Each fighter looked to take advantage of the other in the stand-up game. Nunes continually mixed up his arsenal, pushing the pace, while Siver took the opposite approach, mostly holding court at the center of the Octagon, countering the Brazilian’s attacks.

While Nunes’ attack showed more variety, especially over the course of the first two rounds, it was Siver that was more accurate, and landing with more power. He staggered Nunes on more than one occasion, although it would be Siver’s face that showed more wear and tear at the end of the fight.

The first two rounds were close, but every time Nunes landed something, Siver would answer with power, or short circuit Nunes’ attacks.

A blistering attack by Siver at the end of round two likely stole a very close round, turning the fight to his favor.

Nunes never gave up, finishing strong in round three, landing numerous knees from the Thai clinch and opening a cut around the brow of Siver’s left eye.

In the end, the judges gave a unanimous 29-28 nod to Siver, giving him a win in his featherweight debut, his first fight since losing a lightweight bout to Donald Cerrone at UFC 137.
