ufc fight night 53

Featherweights Dennis Siver and Robert Whiteford have agreed to meet at UFC Fight Night 53 this October. The bout, confirmed by UFC officials, was first reported by the German site Ground and Pound.

Set for October 4 from Stockholm, Sweden and the Ericsson Globe, the event does not have a main event yet.

Siver (21-9) has been serving a suspension for a failed drug test last December after a win over Manny Gamburyan. The German had the result changed to a no-contest and was suspended nine months after human chorionic gonadotropin was found in his system.

The veteran Siver is 10-6 in his UFC career and 2-1 with the one no-contest in his last four fights.

Whiteford (11-2) had his 10-fight win streak snapped in 2013 when he debuted with the UFC against Jimy Hettes. He rebounded earlier this year, scoring a decision victory over Daniel Pineda.

Below is the list of fights announced for the card:

Welterweight: Amir Sadollah vs. Nico Musoke

Featherweight: Niklas Backstrom vs. Mike Wilkinson

Featherweight: Ernest Chavez vs. Zubaira Tukhugov

Featherweight: Dennis Siver vs. Robert Whiteford
