According to mmainterviews.tv, a much anticipated featherweight bout between Dennis Siver and Eddie Yagin has found a new home, following the cancellation of UFC 151.

Siver-Yagin was supposed to take place on the main card of 151, but will now likely be relegated to the undercard of UFC on Fox 5 in December. This was a fight that many fans were looking forward to, and now they will get to see it.

Siver is coming off a successful debut at 145 pounds, as he earned a decision victory over striking ace Diego Nunes. This took place at UFC on Fuel in Sweden, so Siver will have a decent layoff in between fights.

Meanwhile, Yagin is coming off his first UFC win at UFC 145, when he outpointed Mark Hominick on the judge's scorecards. Yagin is also a striker like Siver, which could make this fight interesting.

This is the third UFC 151 fight to land on UFC on Fox 5, joining Abel Trujillo vs. Tim Means and Daron Cruickshank vs. Henry Martinez.

Also joining the UFC on Fox card, according to mmajunkie.com, will be a bantamweight scrap between former title challenger Scott Jorgensen and Ultimate Fighter alumnus John Albert.

This bout, which should be a good one, takes place on the undercard of the event. Both men are looking to get back into the win column.

Albert is looking to avenge two straight losses. The first was an exciting submission loss to Ivan Menjivar, the other was a controversial submission stoppage against Erik Perez.

Jorgensen is also looking to get back on track since losing two straight. Jorgensen was outgunned by Renan Barao, which was followed by a brutal knockout at the hands of Eddie Wineland.

UFC on Fox 5 takes place at the Key Arena in Seattle, WA on December 8.
