(“I ain’t Leonard Garcia, pal.”)
Another New Jersey native has been added to the UFC’s upcoming FX 4 card set for this summer in Atlantic City.
Jimy Hettes (10-0), the undefeated 24-year-old featherweight phenom who impressed us all in his first two UFC bouts, trouncing TUF veterans Alex Caceres and Nam Phan, will join fellow New Jerseyans Dan Miller, Nick Catone and Rich Attonito on the June 22 card.
According to MMAWeekly, “The Kid” will take on TUF 14 washout Steven Siler (20-9, who is also undefeated in the Octagon.
Siler, who defeated Josh Clopton at the TUF 14 Finale in December, raised eyebrows earlier this month when he beat UFC vet Cole Miller by unanimous decision at UFC on FX 2.
UFC on FX 4 boasts a main event lightweight bout between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida, as well as a main card middleweight scrap between Catone and Chris Camozzi and four welterweight fights featuring Brian Ebersole versus TJ Waldburger, Rick Story versus Attonito, Miller vs. Ricardo Funch, and Matthew Riddle versus Luis Ramos.
