UFC on FOX 15: Diego Brandao vs. Jimy Hettes set for April 18 in NJ

Let's try this again.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight hopefuls Diego "Don't Film Me" Brandao and Jimy Hettes have been booked for the upcoming UFC on FOX 15: "Machida vs. Rockhold" mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which takes place on April 18, 2015 inside Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

If it sounds familiar, it is, as these two scrappy 145-pounders were expected to throw hands at the UFC 183 pay-per-view (PPV) event last month in Las Vegas, Nevada (more on that here); however, "The Kid" was hospitalized prior to the event and their fight was postponed.

Take two!

UFC on FOX 15 will be headlined by a fantastic 185-pound match up pitting former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida opposite ex-Strikeforce kingpin Luke Rockhold, while the recently-announced middleweight showdown between Ronaldo Souza and Yoel Romero takes place in the co-main event.
