UFC featherweight Dennis Siver will be returning from a suspension to face Robert Whiteford in Sweden at UFC Fight Night 53, which takes place October 4th from Stockholm Sweden.

Siver was suspended following his unanimous decision win over Manny Gamburyan at UFC 168 in December after failing his post fight drug test and testing positive for hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropic). Prior to that Siver lost to Cub Swanson.

Robert Whiteford on the other hand picked up his first win under the UFC banner back in March with a unanimous decision win over Daniel Pineda at UFC 171. Prior to that he lost his debut bout via submission in the second round.

The lineup for UFC Fight Night 53 is currently as follows:

Nico Musoke vs. Amir Sadollah
Niklas Backstrom vs. Mike Wilkinson
Ernest Chavez vs. Zubaira Tukhugov
Dennis Siver vs. Robert Whiteford
