Nunes vs. Siver Wiki Update Wiki

Nunes and Siver met in a featured featherweight bout on the main card in what was Siver's featherweight debut after a lengthy run at lightweight.


Both fighters started tentative in the first, trading low kicks before Siver went high with a partially-blocked head kick. Siver closed in and whipped Nunes to the mat, but the Brazilian was back up quickly. Nunes landed a good left hook but continued to take hard lead-leg kicks to the body and legs from Siver. Siver laned a one-two counter as Nunes came forward and Nunes responded with a solid kick to the ribs. Both men landed solid hooks upstairs in the final minute and Siver followed up with a heavy leg kick. In the clinch, Siver landed a series of uppercuts to the body while Nunes slammed him with knees before the horn.


Siver blocked a spinning hook kick at the start of round 2 as Nunes increased his attack tempo. Nunes missed a spinning back fist and Siver tripped him to the mat, but again the Brazilian popped back up. Siver landed a counter hook as Nunes pressed forward but the Brazilian looked to be running away with the round with his more active attacks. Siver chopped at the legs with some hard leg kicks and Nunes stuffed another takedown attempt. Siver took some momentum back in the second half of the round, landing some hard shots upstairs as he got Nunes's timing down.


Siver went right back to work with kicks to the body in the third but Nunes dropped the German to a knee with a right hand. Siver got back to his feet and the two exchanged hard strikes. A recovered Siver continued to be the more active fighter midway through the round, finding a home for his leg and body kicks as both men protected their heads well. Nunes landed a pair of knees in the Thai clinch then broke away. One of the strikes cut Siver above the left eye and Nunes landed some punches to the head. Siver tried for a takedown but settled for a clinch, landing strikes to the body. Nunes caught Siver again in a Thai plum and landed some brutal knees and Siver connected on an overhand left. The final horn sounded to cap off an extremely close fight.


The judges scored the bout 29-28 across the board for Siver, giving him the Unanimous Decision victory.
