UFC Fight Night 112 results: Dennis Siver defeats BJ Penn by decision (highlights)

Dennis Siver defeats BJ Penn at UFC Fight Night 112

On Sunday night, the UFC touched down in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma with UFC Fight Night 112. The main card of this anticipated, 13-fight event occurred in the featherweight division, where our very own BJ Penn – a former two-division champ and a UFC Hall of Famer – collided with German veteran Dennis Siver.

Though Penn nearly finished his foe in the second round, dropping him with a blistering uppercut, Siver was the far busier man throughout the rest of the fight.

Round three was particularly strong for the Russian-born German, as he landed a whopping 51 strikes to Penn’s 9, and battered the Hawaiian Hall of Famer with a damaging onslaught of leg kicks.

Despite Penn’s strong second round, Siver’s success in the first and third ultimately earned him the judges’ nod. He will leave Oklahoma City with a new majority decision win over a legend on his record.

With this win, Siver makes a successful return after a long stretch on the shelf. In his two next most recent bouts, he was TKO’d by Conor McGregor, and decisioned by Japan’s Tatsuya Kawajiri. He is 23-11 overall.

Penn, meanwhile, stumbles to 0-3 at featherweight, having lost his last two bouts to Frankie Edgar and Dennis Siver. The legend is 16-12-2 in sum.
