Jim Hettes (10-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has been forced out a planned UFC 159 matchup with Steven Siler (21-10 MMA, 3-1 UFC), and Strikeforce import Kurt Holobaugh (9-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has agreed to take his place.

UFC officials revealed the switch during Tuesday's new edition of "UFC Tonight."

UFC 159 takes place April 27 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. The main card, including a main event between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen, airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook. Holobaugh vs. Siler is expected to take place on the evening's preliminary portion.

Kurt impressed me with his performance in strikeforce even in the loss to Healy. I hope he does well in this one.

i like this fight still because siler is still in it, but i liked the siler vs hettes matchup WAY more. this card needs some good fights on the undercard/prelims badly
