Steven Siler Says UFC 154 Bout With Darren Elkins Next
By FCF Staff
UFC 154 will also reportedly feature a bout between streaking featherweights Steven Siler and Darren Elkins. Siler made the announcement about the November 17th fight via his official Twitter account.
The 28 year-old Elkins (14-2) is coming off a unanimous decision win over former TUF winner Diego Brandao in May. The former lightweight has won three straight, which includes wins over Michihiro Omigawa and Tiequan Zhang.
Siler (21-9) has also won three straight fights since competing on the 14th Season of TUF. Most recently, at a UFC on FX card in June, the 25 year-old tapped out Joey Gambino with a second round, guillotine choke.
UFC 154 will be hosted by Montreal’s Bell Centre and will feature welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre versus interim champ Carlos Condit.
