Steven Siler won’t forget April 27. He took a decision win to Kurt Holobaugh at UFC 159 and earlier in the day learned he was expecting his first child.
“This is the best day of my life,” said Siler to MMA Fighting. “After eight months of trying, I found out today I’m going to be a daddy.”
The win improves Siler to 4-1 for the UFC. He holds decisions against Josh Clopton and Cole Miller with a first round submission to Joey Gambino.
It was Holobaugh’s UFC debut as he came in from Strikeforce. He’s now 9-2, losing his previous two.
They opened UFC 159 which was this past Saturday. It came from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.
