UFC 132: Dennis Siver Beats Matt Wiman in Close Decision

Dennis Siver beats Matt Wiman at UFC 132.In a unanimous decision that left the fans in Las Vegas booing, Dennis Siver defeated Matt Wiman at UFC 132 on Saturday night.

All three judges scored the bout 29-28 for Siver, apparently deciding that he had won the first and third rounds. In the second round Wiman turned Siver's forehead into a bloody mess with a series of elbows from inside Siver's guard, but drawing blood wasn't enough to win the fight for Wiman.

"It was a very close decision," the German Siver said afterward, through his translator. "So we didn't know who would win. ... Altogether I was satisfied."


The decision will be remembered as a controversial one, but it hands Siver his fourth consecutive victory. Siver is now 7-1 since returning to the UFC in 2009, and he's 19-7 overall in his professional MMA career.

For Wiman, who falls to 13-6, it's a major disappointment for a fighter who entered on a three-fight winning streak. Wiman looked good, even if the judges thought Siver won.
