A pair of featherweight contenders will square off at UFC 154 in Montreal when Steven Siler meets Darren Elkins.

Sources at Siler’s management team, AMR Group, confirmed the fight to MMAWeekly.com on Monday.

Since his time on the Ultimate Fighter season 14, Steven Siler has looked virtually unstoppable in the UFC. Winning his last three fights in a row, Siler has dispatched of Cole Miller and Joey Gambino in his most recent fights.

Facing Siler in Montreal will be Darren Elkins, who looks to extend a three fight win streak of his own when he competes at UFC 154.

What jjeans said...
This is a great fight, both of these guys are on the rise and looking like they may be top contenders soon. I like Siler for this one and really only see him losing if he gets clipped.

I agree. Both guys are on the rise. More good match making IMO. Tough fight for me to pick as well.
Both guys are riding a three fight win streak. One of their streaks will come to an end.

Agreed. Great fight.

I can see Elkins squeaking out a UD though if he's savvy.

Sadly I think Elkins gets the decision in a boring fight.

But here's hoping Siler puts on another great showing for a finish.
