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.
