Siver (22–9) has had an up and down career as of late. In his last five fights he is 2-2 and now has one no contest on his record as of now.
He lost to Donald Cerrone in 2011 at UFC 137 via rear naked choke, he went on a two fight winning streak when he beat Diego Nunes and Nam Phan in 2012 via unanimous decision. However, he slipped back as he lost to Cub Swanson at UFC 162 when he was knocked out.
When we get more, we will update this developing story.
