Erick Silva-Jay Hieron Targeted For UFC 156

Welterweights Erick Silva and Jay Hieron will each have the opportunity to get back on track come 2013, as the two have signed to meet at UFC 156.

UFC 156 takes place February 2, with UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo defending his title against Frankie Edgar. The exact placement of Silva-Hieron is unknown at this time.

Silva (14-3) was topped by Jon Fitch in his most recent bout, as the Brazilian was unable to get out from the grinding style Fitch imposed.

Hieron (23-6) made his return to the Octagon for the first time in seven years, falling to Jake Ellenberger.
