Featherweights Dennis Siver and Eddie Yagin have been signed to face each other at UFC 151, MMAjunkie.com reported on Tuesday. The card takes place September 1 from Las Vegas.
Siver (20-8) defeated Diego Nunes in his debut at featherweight earlier this year. He is 9-5 in his UFC career, including five wins in his last six fights.
Yagin (16-5-1) has split his two UFC bouts, defeating Mark Hominick after falling to Junior Assuncao.
UFC 151 is scheduled to feature Jon Jones defending his UFC light heavyweight title against Dan Henderson. The placement of the Siver-Yagin bout was not determined, though a spot on the prelims seems likely.
