Steven Siler rebounded from his first UFC victory, earning a decision over Kurt Holobaugh Saturday night at UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen.
The good news for Siler didn’t start inside the Octagon, as he found out earlier in the day that he would become a father.
“I found out I’m going to be a daddy today, so this is without a doubt the best day of my life,” Siler said. “I knew as long as I continued to push him and maintained aggression, I would win the fight.”
Siler (22-10) started his UFC career with three straight victories, but was topped by Darren Elkins via decision to close out 2012.
