Both fighters are coming off of wins and will need to pick up a win in this fight in order to guarantee their job. The fight will come down to whether or not Hettes can get the takedown. If he can, he will submit Siler. But if the fight stays standing, it favors Siler. Expect Hettes to open as a slight favorite when the MMA odds for the fight come out.
