UFC 159 Receives Steven Siler Vs. Jimy Hettes

Featherweights Steven Siler and Jimy Hettes have a date for UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen, as Siler confirmed the bout on Twitter Friday. The card takes place April 27 from Newark, New Jersey.

The two were expected to meet last June, but Hettes was forced off the card with an injury. The bout will likely be part of the prelims from the Prudential Center.

Siler (21-10) has won three of his four UFC bouts, including three straight to start his career. He was defeated by Darren Elkins in his most recent match.

Hettes (10-1) is 2-1 since joining the promotion. He is also coming off a loss, having been defeated by Marcus Brimage.
