UFC NEWS – Dennis Siver Planning Drop To Featherweight

January 2, 2012 12:15 pm 18 Comments

UFC lightweight fighter, Dennis Siver, is reportedly making plans to leave his divisional home of lightweight to try and make a run in the UFC”s featherweight division.

The German striker made a huge impact in the UFC’s lightweight division when he took out title contender George Sotiropoulos in route to a four-fight win streak. However, in his most recent outing he suffered a devastating TKO loss at the hands of Donald Cerrone at UFC 137 and that loss, apparently, was all he needed to call it quits and try out a new division.

Standing just five-foot-seven-inches, Siver remains one of the shorter fighters on the UFC’s lightweight roster. While he boasts a muscular and thick frame, he is apparently confident that he has room to make the 10-pound drop in weight.

But will he succeed?
