Two former Ultimate Fighter season 17 cast members will square
off at UFC 169 as Clint Hester draws Andy Enz in a middleweight
bout headed to Newark, New Jersey on Feb 1.
Sources close to the fight confirmed the new bout to FOX Sports
on Thursday with bout agreements issued for the upcoming
Hester (9-3) will make a quick turnaround following his last
fight — a win over another TUF 17 cast member, Dylan Andrews.
It marked Hester’s second win in the UFC since leaving the reality
show, and now he’ll face another familiar face for his next bout as
Andy Enz (8-0) didn’t make it into The Ultimate Fighter 17
house, but it’s not for a lack of trying. As it turns out, he
was the only fighter during the fights in the house that made it to
a decision with Uriah Hall while also competing with a broken arm
after suffering the injury in the early part of the elimination
Following his exit from the show, Enz went on to pick up two
more victories to get the call back to the UFC where he recently
signed a multi-fight deal with the promotion.
Now he’ll have the chance to prove he belongs inside the Octagon
while also getting a chance at a little vindication facing another
former TUF 17 fighter in Hester.
