Penn (16-10-2) is now 37 years old and has not scored an official UFC win since 2010 when he knocked out Matt Hughes. He has gone 0-5-1 around that victory.
Siver (22-11) will be searching for his first win since a 2014 decision over Charles Rosa following losses last year to current featherweight champion Conor McGregor and Tatsuya Kawajiri.
The UFC 199 card currently features a pair of title fights, as Chris Weidman challenges Luke Rockhold for the middleweight belt and Urijah Faber does the same for bantamweight gold vs. Dominick Cruz.
