Seven years after his most recent trip to the octagon, Jay Hieron (23-5 MMA, 0-2 UFC) is returning to the UFC. Multiples sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Hieron has agreed to replace injured Josh Koscheck (17-6 MMA, 15-6 UFC) and now will meet fellow welterweight Jake Ellenberger (27-6 MMA, 6-2 UFC) at UFC 151.

Then Jay will be cut if he loses.

I only like this if Ellenberger wins, b/c Jay barely eeked out some wins in Bellator that should have been losses for him.

24 days until the event.

This fight will probably still be the co-main event with how weak the card is.

Good to see Hieron back in the UFC but this is a tough draw.....Ellenberger via Pure Destruction

This obviously is not a big draw fight like Kos. Hieron also has a win over Ellenberger in the IFL a while back, so this`ll be their second fight. I`m just happy Ellenberger is still fighting tbh.

Big Tim Sylvia is probably sitting in his shed somewhere, a vacant look in his eye. A pistol in his lap.

I'd rather watch James Toney fight Hong Man Choi.

Something about Hieron makes me not want to watch any fight hes in.

This is the fight they should have put Siyar in. Hes calling out BJ Penn so it sounds like he wants to move up in the weight class and would be the way.

By Pure Destruction is right. Jake was on a roll going into the Kampamnn fight and really had Kampmann finished early in the first. Did you see the look on Jake's face after the fight. He is gonna tear Hieron apart.

Jay is a seasoned competitor - I'm not saying I think he will win, but if Hieron scores a lucky punch this could backfire and turn out to be Dana's worst nightmare. Although, there is no shortage of people lined up at the top of the division, so no big loss.

Jake is taking this by UD. Easy pick imo

THERE IS A GOD



Which one?

And I would argue that there is no god because we don't get to see Kos get KO'd again
