The Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to build on its upcoming June 22nd card in Atlantic City, as today the promotion announced that rising featherweights Steve Siler and Jim Hettes will fight at the event.

Siler (20-9) has won both of his official UFC bouts since the 25 year-old competed in the 14th season of “The Ultimate Fighter”, as the featherweight has scored back-to-back unanimous decision wins over Josh Clopton and most recently Cole Miller.

After losing six of his first ten pro fights, Siler has turned things around dramatically and is 17-2 in his last 19 bouts.

The undefeated Hettes (10-0) has also won his first two Octagon fights, as the noted grappler tapped out Alex Caceres in August, before working his way to a UD win over Nam Phan in December.

Nine of the the 24 year-old-fighter’s victories have come by submission.

The upcoming UFC on FX 4 card will be headlined by a five round lightweight bout between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida.

Some of the other bouts scheduled for the event include TJ Waldburger vs. Brian Ebersole, Ricardo Funch vs. Dan Miller, and Rich Attonito vs. Rick Story.


The event is expected to take place at Atlantic City’s Revel Casino and will be broadcast live on FX.
