Former lightweight contender Dennis Siver is planning a move to featherweight in 2012, sources close to the fighter confirmed with MMAFighting.com. No word just yet on when the 19-8 German fighter will make his debut in the 145-pound weight class.

Can he make it?

Dude is pretty thick for LW, have to lose some muscle or something.

Will be a good move if he can make it w/o draining himself.

Great choice. Lay off the weights and he'll make it just fine.

It'll be interesting to see his power striking @ 45

Dropping down doesn't mean he'll be successful......Dennis 'The Machinist' Siver

Very true. I think Siver is to short at LW and the Div is way to competitive right now. FW will be an easier run for the title no doubt.

Cole Miller on the other hand, DOES NOT need to cut down. Hell I'd say he pull a "Reem" and bulk up.

Interesting...I like siver a lot at lightweight, curious to see if he can actually cut the weight to a point where he can be relevant in a fight w/o gassing out against fast guys like erik koch and even junior aldo...should be fun to watch

His height is better suited for FW.

It would help to know what he walks around at.

I would try to avoid the Diaz weights at all cost at this point, good move Dennis.

His reach always puts him at a disadvantage given that his forte is striking. I like the move though.

Very nice addition. I like the fact that some ufc lightweights are moving down
