Siver edged Wiman on points.

Dennis Siver survived a harrowing second round and eked out a controversial unanimous decision over “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 5 alum Matt Wiman in a featured lightweight affair. All three cageside judges saw it 29-28 for Siver, who has pieced together a four-fight winning streak inside the promotion’s deepest division.

Siver (19-7, 8-4 UFC) stuffed Wiman’s early takedown attempts and controlled the standup for much of the encounter. However, Wiman grounded the Russian-born German kickboxer in the second round and tattooed him with heavy elbows from inside his guard, opening a pair of cuts on his forehead. By the time the period ended, Siver’s head and torso were covered in blood.

Round three was close and competitive, as Wiman (13-6, 7-4 UFC) connected with a nice overhand right and scored with a trip takedown. Siver had his moments, too, highlighted by a precision front kick to the face and thudding leg kicks. He closed in better position, as he swept Wiman off his feet with a low kick, attacked with punches from the top and
threatened with a guillotine choke as the horn sounded.

“It was a very close decision. That’s a fact. I don’t know who won,” Siver said. “Next time, I’m going to try to improve my takedown defense. Altogether, I was satisfied with the fight. This guy was horribly strong, and it was very hard for me to hit him.”
