UFC 159 continues to take shape as a pair of bouts have been added to the New Jersey fight card. New Jersey native Nick Catone will take on James Head at welterweight. At lightweight, a pair of The Ultimate Fighter Live teammates will square off as Al Iaquinta meets Joe Proctor.
All four fighters come into their respective bouts in need of a win after losses in their last outings. Both bouts are likely to land on the FX or Facebook preliminary cards.
UFC 159 is set for Newark, New Jersey. The card will be headlined by a matchup of The Ultimate Fighter 17 coaches, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen. The card will take place April 27 and tickets went on sale last week.
