Score, meet settle.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has added yet another high stakes match-up for its upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 2 fight card, the second entry into the cable television network's live mixed martial arts (MMA) programming on April 14 at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

Featherweight striker Ross Pearson will try to make it two in a row against fellow former lightweight Dennis Siver when they hook 'em up in a 145-pound rematch, according to a report from MMA NYTT.

Pearson (13-5) is fresh off a close unanimous decision win over Junior Assuncao at UFC 141 just last month, his first win at featherweight after Edson Barboza convinced him to head south for the winter.

Now that the Brit has proven he's "The Real Deal" at 145, can he spoil the German kickboxer's featherweight debut in a rematch from their UFC Fight Night 21 contest?

Siver (19-8) had quietly assembled a four-fight winning streak at 155-pounds; however, Donald Cerrone put an end to his consecutive dubyas with a first round strangulation at UFC 137 last October.

Who will be the better man at the lighter weight?

UFC on Fuel TV 2 features native son Alexander Gustafsson in the main event taking on longtime veteran and Brazilian banger Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Other bouts booked for the event include Brian Stann vs. Alessio Sakara and Paulo Thiago vs. Siyar Bahadurzada.
