Siver vs. Yagin moved to December

A featherweight bout between Dennis Siver and Eddie Yagin is official for “UFC On FOX 5.”

UFC officials announced the news earlier today. The event takes place in Seattle on December 8, featuring a lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson and top contender Nate Diaz.

Siver and Yagin were originally scheduled to meet at UFC 151 this coming weekend, but that event was ultimately cancelled.

Siver last competed at the UFC’s April Sweden event, earning a victory over Diego Nunes in his featherweight debut. The talented striker left the lightweight division after a four-fight winning streak was snapped by Donald Cerrone.

Meanwhile, Yagin scored an upset victory in his last fight, earning a split-decision win over former top contender Mark Hominick at UFC 145. He is an even 1-1 in the UFC.
