Steven Siler vs. Rony Jason
Jacob Cooper: I think this is actually quite an intriguing match-up as I see Siler as one of the more underrated fighters in the featherweight division. Siler is a tough fight for anyone and he has some impressive wins in his UFC career over Mike Brown and Cole Miller. I’ve not been overly impressed by Jason, despite going 3-1 inside the UFC. I think he’s too careless and aggressive and this will be costly against the more experienced, calm and collected Siler who has 34 fights in his career – a pretty crazy stat for a 27 year old. Siler will silence the home fans with a performance that puts him back to winning ways; I’m not totally sure how he’ll do it, but I favour the American in this one. Siler via 2nd round submission.
Kevin Thang: Rony suffered a short set back losing to Stephens, he’ll bounce back nicely here against Siler, who while tough, his skills are not on par with those of Rony–better standup and grappling. Jason via 1st round submission.
Kristian Ibarra: Both guys looking to bounce back after some disappointing losses, but I see Jason coasting with his boxing en route to a victory in this one. Jason via decision.
Jessie Lorenty: So both these guys are coming off a loss but not really fighting for their jobs as they both had some success prior to their most recent setbacks. I think Siler has faced the better opponents during his time in the UFC but Jason has finished most of his guys. I don’t see this one being the most exciting fight but I see Siler taking the decision. Siler via decision.
