Jake Ellenberger, Jay Hieron Named Co-Main Event For UFC On FX: Browne Vs. Bigfoot

The original co-main event for UFC 151 has a new home, as Jake Ellenberger and Jay Hieron will collide October 5 at UFC on FX: Browne vs. Bigfoot.

Ellenberger and Hieron were set to meet September 1, but with the cancellation of the card, new spots are needed for several fights.

Hieron will be making his return to the UFC after seven years away. Ellenberger, meanwhile, is looking to rebound from a loss to Martin Kampmann.

The fight will be the co-main event to a heavyweight war between Travis Browne and Antonio Silva.
