Siver targets move to featherweight

by Chris Palmquist | source:

The last time Dennis Siver was in the octagon, he had his 4-fight win streak snapped by Donald Cerrone at UFC 137, being submitted in the 1st round. The UK fighter has been fighting consistently in the UFC since 2007, compiling a 9-5 record overall in the UFC. The loss to Cerrone put on a hold any momentum Siver had towards a lightweight title shot.

At 5'7", Siver is not exactly an under-sized lightweight, but it was recently confirmed by Ariel Helwani of that Siver would be making a move to the featherweight division:

No word just yet on when the 19-8 German fighter will make his debut in the 145-pound weight class.

Siver's eventual move continues a trend of UFC lightweights dropping down to featherweight following the UFC-WEC merger in 2011. Other names who have made the switch include Kenny Florian, Tyson Griffin, Ross Pearson and Bart Palaszewski.

This. Considering how well he did against some very good competition @ LW, I think he can definitely make some noise @ FW. I'd like to see Siver vs. Bart P. !

I like it, anyone think Guida will make the move to FW?Maybe he fights Maynard next but I think if he loses another fight he could drop to FW, maybe even try it right now.FW div is getting better, with Oliveira dropping, Siver dropping, Mendes, aldo, Hioki, if they can sign someone like Crusher, div would be dam solid, guys like Dustin P, Zombie, Koch, Hominick, Omigawa, Hettes, Diego B.
