Jimy Hettes Vs. Dennis Bermudez Set For UFC 171


Jimy Hettes and Dennis Bermudez will clash in a featherweight match March 15 at UFC 171.

The submission ace Hettes, who hails out of Pennsylvania, looks to up his winning streak to two when he faces The Ultimate Fighter Season 14 runner-up Bermudez.

Hettes is 3-1 inside the UFC, and two of those victories have come by submission. His most recent fight was against Rob Whiteford in October at UFC Fight Night 30, where Hettes sent Whiteford to sleep with a triangle choke. All but one of Hettes’ professional wins have come via submission.

Bermudez is on a roll inside the UFC after he lost to Diego Brandao at the TUF 14 finale. Bermudez rallied after that loss to win five straight in the UFC, with his most recent victory coming over Steven Siler at UFC Fight For The Troops 3.

UFC 171 takes place March 15 in Dallas, Tex., and features a main event for the vacant UFC welterweight title between Robbie Lawler and Johny Hendricks.
