<p>Siver (22-11, 1 NC) is 1-2 with one no contest in his past three bouts. He faced current featherweight champion Conor McGregor last year in Boston and lost via second-round TKO. After that, he dropped a unanimous decision to Tatsuya Kawajiri at UFC Fight Night 69. Siver’s last win came against Charles Rosa via unanimous decision in a <em>Fight of the Night </em>performance.</p>
<p>UFC 199 will be held at The Forum in Los Angeles, California on June 4. The card will be headlined by a rematch between former middleweight champion Chris Weidman and current champion Luke Rockhold. The co-main event features the rubber match between rivals Urijah Faber and bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz.</p>
