Former lightweight contender Dennis Siver will make his featherweight debut at UFC on Fuel TV 2 after all, but will face Diego Nunes at the April 14 event in Stockholm, Sweden after a rumored rematch with Ross Pearson failed to come together.
The Siver vs. Nunes matchup was first reported by MMANytt.se.
Siver (19-8) won four-straight over the likes of George Sotiropoulos and Matt Wiman before falling to Donald Cerrone at UFC 137 in October, prompting the German’s move down to 145-pounds, while Nunes (17-2) rebounded from a loss to contender Kenny Florian with a unanimous decision over rival Manny Gamburyan last month at UFC 141.
UFC on Fuel TV 2 is headlined by light heavyweight contenders Alexander Gustafsson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
