The UFC has signed undefeated Pennsylvania-based featherweight, Jim "The Kid" Hettes (8-0), to a contract according to his hometown newspaper, The Citizen's Voice.

The 24 year-old is a BJJ and judo specialist and has finished all eight of his opponents by submission, with six of those submissions happening in the first round.

Yeah, same with me, I haven't heard anything about him yet.
He's 7-0 and seems to be strong at submissions.
6 of his 7 fights were finished in the first round.
He's young at the age of 24.
His average professional bout time is only 2 minutes, 6 seconds.

Looks pretty promising.
