TUF 17 fighters Clint Hester and Andy Enz agree to meet at UFC 169

BY Damon Martin • December 20, 2013

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 matchup.

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 well.

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 round showdown.

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.
