A featherweight bout between Steven Siler (21-10 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and Jimy Hettes (10-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) is the latest addition to April's UFC 159 event.

Siler today announced via Twitter that he's signed a bout agreement for the fight.

UFC 159 takes place April 27 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. The main card, including a headliner between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen, airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Siler vs. Hettes, which initially was expected to take place this past June at UFC on FX 4 before Hettes was forced off the card with an injury, likely will be part of the prelims.

The latest UFC 159 card includes:

Champ Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen - for light-heavyweight title
Alan Belcher vs. Michael Bisping
Phil Davis vs. Vinny Magalhaes
Pat Healy vs. Jim Miller
Cheick Kongo vs. Roy Nelson
Nick Catone vs. James Head
Jimy Hettes vs. Steven Siler

I'm thinking Hettes takes this one as long as he can get top position. Standing Siler will more then make this fight interesting

Hettes wins an easy EASY fight here. Siler's a very low-end fighter.

I wouldn't say that. Siler's a bit wild and sloppy at times, but he's tough and talented and he knows how to win. While I do think Hettes' discipline and strength on the ground will be the difference, I'm not counting Siler out automatically.
