Two of the UFC’s hottest featherweights have agreed to face off next month in Montreal, as a bout between Steven Siler-Darren Elkins has been attached to the lineup for UFC 154. Both men have come out victorious in their previous three pairings and will likely earn a shot at the next level of competition with a win at the November 17 event.
The UFC has not officially confirmed the bout though Siler went on Twitter to state the scrap was set.
Siler has looked sharp since a decent showing on the Ultimate Fighter 14, even picking up a win over Cole Miller this past March. Only 25, Siler is 21-9 in his career with fifteen finishes including thirteen triumphs by way of submission.
Meanwhile, Elkins holds an overall mark of 14-2 with victories over Michihiro Omigawa, Tiequan Zhang, and Diego Brandao in his last three fights.
UFC 154 is scheduled to feature a unification bout between welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and linear title-holder Carlos Condit in the main event. Other bouts slated for the card include Patrick Cote-Alessio Sakara, Rafael dos Anjos-Mark Bocek, and Martin Kampmann-Johny Hendricks.
