It has not been the easiest year for Jay Hieron. He was robbed of the Bellator welterweight championship after a hard-fought contest with champion Ben Askren, his UFC return was postponed after UFC 151 was cancelled, and his loss to Jake Ellenberger makes him one of few men in history with a 0-3 record in the Octagon.

Here is a look at five fights for Jay Hieron to take next.
