Dennis Siver vs. Andre Winner Bout Planned for UFC 122

by Matt Erickson | source:

 A lightweight bout between Dennis Siver and Andre Winner is planned for UFC 122 in Germany, sources told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani on Thursday.

The event will be the UFC's second in Germany and will be a homecoming for Siver. He also fought on the promotion's debut in that country, UFC 99 in June 2009, submitting Dale Hartt with a first-round rear naked choke. Siver (16-7, 5-4 UFC) is of German and Russian descent and began his MMA career in Germany.

Siver last fought at the Season 11 finale of "The Ultimate Fighter," beating Spencer Fisher by unanimous decision. Three of his last five fights have netted him post-fight bonus awards – two Knockout of the Night wins (Nate Mohr at UFC 93, Paul Kelly at UFC 105) and a Fight of the Night against Ross Pearson at UFC Fight Night 21, though he lost a decision.

Winner (11-4-1, 2-2 UFC), from England, will look to rebound from a decision setback against Nik Lentz at UFC 118 just 12 days ago. A member of the Season 9 cast of "The Ultimate Fighter," Winner reached the finals, where he lost a unanimous decision to Pearson, a fellow U.K. fighter and his Team Rough House teammate.

Joe Silva finally decided to put Andre against a striker, this has FOTN potential written all over it.

Don't jinx it dammit! I think Winner should take this. Although I wouldn't mind seeing a few more of those Siver spinning back kicks.

It would be hilarious if this fight turned into another clinchfest. I don't think it will but the irony would be hilarious

This should be a fine fight. Siver has good wrestling but doesn't over-rely on it, Likes to get stuck it. Should be some great action in this fight.
