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

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

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.
