A clash of featherweight prospects has been penciled into UFC 154, which will emanate live from the Bell Centre in Montreal on November 17, as TUF veteran Steven Siler is now slated to do battle with Darren Elkins. Both prospects are looking to notch their belts with another quality win and move up the 145 lb. food chain.
Siler (21-9) is currently 3-0 in the UFC. The Pit Fight Team product competed on The Ultimate Fighter 14, losing in the quarter finals to eventual winner Diego Brandao. “Super” has since picked up wins over Josh Clopton, former lightweight contender Cole Miller, and Joey Gambino.
Elkins (14-2) is undefeated since making the move to featherweight. Since debuting in the 145 lb. weight class, the Indiana native has earned victories over Michihiro Omigawa, Tiequan Zhang, and Diego Brandao.
