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. Hettes was originally supposed to debut with the UFC last year at the TUF 12 Finale, but a minor league promoter refused to release him from his contract at the time, leaving him unable to sign a UFC contract then. No debut date or opponent has been set for him yet.

Lamas is looking to rebound from a KO loss to Yuri Alcantara at WEC 53, which ended a three-fight winning streak for him. UFC on Versus 4 coverage

Manny Gamburyan has been forced out of his UFC 128 bout in Newark against Raphael Assuncao due to injury, according to MMA Junkie. A search is underway for a new opponent for Assuncao, but with Erik Koch in need of a new opponent after his bout was scratched from the UFC on Versus 3 card next week, it might make sense to match Koch up with Assuncao just two weeks later.
