Don’t look now, but the UFC’s featherweight division continues to produce fighters that finish fights.
Since starting his career with a record of 5-7, Siler has won 18 of his last 21 fights overall. He was on a past season of The Ultimate Fighter, but didn’t impress UFC president Dana White.
“This is a big, big win,” Siler said. “Not bad coming from a guy Dana White crossed off on The Ultimate Fighter; beating a former WEC champion. I understand how big it is to beat Mike Brown.”
Siler connected with a right that first dropped Brown. He proceeded to hammer him with another that saw Brown’s eyes roll back in his head. He protested the decision by the referee to call it, but Siler said, “I tried to stop (hitting him). I knew it was over.”
