01:59 PM ET 03.04 | A featherweight scrap between Leonard Garcia and Cody McKenzie has been scheduled for April 27 at UFC 159 in New Jersey. The Prudential Center in Newark will play host to the event that is headlined by a light-heavyweight title bout between The Ultimate Fighter season 17 coaches Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen. Garcia vs. McKenzie was originally slated to take place on the UFC 155 preliminary card back in December, but McKenzie was forced off of the card due to injury, but the two entertaining fighters will now face on the UFC 159 fight card. Garcia and McKenzie bring exciting styles to the octagon, but both men could be fighing for their UFC lives. McKenzie is coming off of a 30-second knockout loss to Team Alpha Male's Chad Mendes and has lost three of his last four bouts, while Garcia is currently on a four-fight losing streak.
