Kenny Florian, Ross Pearson, Cole Miller, Tyson Griffin, Bart Palaszewski…this list of talented UFC lightweights deciding to slim down a division seems to grow daily, and now it appears at least one more skilled competitor will be joining their ranks at some point soon in the form of Dennis Siver.
Unlike many of his peers who have struggled to find consistency at 155, the 32-year old German kickboxer may be coming off a loss to Donald Cerrone but had racked up consecutive wins against Spencer Fisher, Andre Winner, George Sotiropoulos, and Matt Wiman prior to the stumble.
Though nothing has been confirmed, the typically reliable MMAFighting has reported a source close to Siver’s camp has informed them of the pending change.
Siver holds an overall record of 19-8 with nearly half of the wins occurring inside the Octagon. In addition to the aforementioned names the native of Mannheim has also come away with his hand raised against Jim Wallhead and Paul Kelly.
