Before the setback, Jason was on an eight fight winning streak including three in a row inside the UFC. He will look to get back to his winning ways against Siler in March.
Steven Siler, a TUF 14 alumnus, is 5-2 in his UFC career including notable wins over Mike Brown and Cole Miller. Siler is coming off a loss to Dennis Bermudez in a hard fought battle back at UFC Fight for the Troops. Siler was on a two fight winning streak before losing to Bermudez, and will look to rebound against Jason.
