Rony Jason vs. Steven Siler set for UFC Fight Night 38

The TUF Brazil 1 featherweight winner has been added to the Natal Fight Night card, and he'll face off with another TUF vet.

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Rony Jason suffered his first UFC loss the last time he made the trip to the octagon, and the TUF Brazil 1 featherweight winner will be looking to get back on the winning track on March 23rd. On that day, he'll take on Steven Siler at UFC Fight Night 38 in Natal. MMA Fighting's Guilherme Cruz broke the news earlier today.

Jason (13-4) defeated Godofredo Pepey to take the TUF Brazil 1 title, then took out Sam Sicilia and Mike Wilkinson. But in his last bout he was knocked out in 40 seconds by Jeremy Stephens.

Siler (23-11) had a two-fight winning streak stopped when he dropped a unanimous decision to Dennis Bernudez at UFC Fight for the Troops 3 in November. He's 5-2 overall in the UFC.

The fight is expected to take place on the main card of the event. The headliner will likely be the rematch between light heavyweight Mauricio Rua and Dan Henderson.
