Default UFC 159 *SPOILERS*

Here we go!

Steven Siler vs. Kurt Holobaugh

Round 1:
Gasper Oliver is the referee. Both open orthodox and Holobaugh is taking center position in the cage. Holobaugh presses Siler into the fence and is landing short punches to the body in the clinch. Siler scores a takedown from the clinch and takes Holobaugh's back in the process. Silver snatches Holobaugh off of his base and almost scores the choke, but can't do it. He's landing shot after shot on Holobaugh as the Strikeforce vet tries to stand to escape. Siler still all over him. Holobaugh rolls through and lands an ultra deep rear naked choke, but somehow Holobaugh managed to escape.

Round 2:
Siler is caught in a guillotine right off the break, but he escapes and now works inside Holobaugh's guard. Siler backs off only to pull guard himself as Holobaugh stands. Siler nearly scores a butterfly sweep, but uses it to stand. Holobaugh counters Siler and scores a hard punch, where he tries to follow up with another guillotine but can't. Siler scores and upkick, but Holobaugh responds with hard shots on top and good submission defense. Siler creates some distance and stands. The two wing punches where Siler scores the harder shots, although he's eating a leg kick or two.

Round 3:
Holobaugh lands a few hard inside leg kicks to start the round. Siler scores a right hand and knee to the body and Holobaugh rips his own body shot. The two clinch and Siler is trying to find a takedown. Right elbow over the top lands for Holobaugh as the two go back and forth along the fence. Siler scores his own and a left hook as they separate. Two hard right hands for Holobaugh and while Holobaugh goes for a hip throw, Siler takes his back. Siler holds the position for several minutes and finishes with hard punches.

Steven Siler def. Kurt Holobaugh via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
