Dennis Siver has a date in Stockholm after all.
A 32-year-old striking specialist, Siver (19-8) makes his 145-pound debut following a two-minute TKO loss to Donald Cerrone at UFC 137. The eye-opening setback snapped a four-fight win streak that had pushed the German's name into title contention.
Nunes (17-2), meanwhile, hopes to continue his climb up the rankings after rebounding from a tough loss to Kenny Florian by defeating Manny Gamburyan at UFC 141. A winner of four of his last five contests, "The Gun" has fought to decision in eight straight appearances.
