A featherweight bout has been added to the upcoming UFC 152 card in Canada as Jimy Hettes has agreed to face Marcus Brimage.

UFC officials announced the pairing on Friday.

With a perfect 10-0 record, Jimy Hettes has been talked about as one of the brightest prospects in the featherweight division.

Unfortunately injuries have slowed down his ability to fight as of late, but now healthy he will resume his career when he gets back in the cage in September.

Facing Hettes in Toronto will be former Ultimate Fighter competitor Marcus Brimage.

Training out of the world famous American Top Team, Brimage was one of the least experienced fighters on the reality show, but has made his presence known since that time winning his last two fights inside the Octagon.

Now he’ll get the chance to steal the thunder from Hettes when they face off in September.
