Clint Hester faces Andy Enz at UFC 169 in New Jersey

Bradley Kanaris

Two TUF 17 alums square off at the Prudential Center in New Jersey at UFC 169.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has added another bout for its return to New Jersey in 2014.

Clint Hester has the pleasure of formally welcoming Andy Enz to the big leagues. For those that may not have remembered, Enz was one of the original fighters vying for a spot in the Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Season 17 house. He drew Uriah Hall in the first round and lost the bout by Unanimous Decision.

The bout with Hester was announced on UFC Tonight and confirmed on Twitter.com.

Hester was also a member of that TUF cast which makes this bout a bit of a "what if" match making. He made it into the house but suffered a bit of a upset loss at the hands of Jimmy Quinlan. He left a lasting impression as he was still given a shot to fight on the Finale. He knocked Bristol Marunde out in the third round with a standing elbow.

He was last seen fighting Dylan Andrews at UFC Fight Night 33. The bout had some decent back and forth action but ended in disappointment when Andrews separated his shoulder and was forced to quit in between rounds.

Enz broke his arm during his bout with Hall, but has since gone on a successful run in the Alaskan Fighting Championship. None of his last three opponents have made it out of the first round.

UFC 169 is headlined by a unification bout between UFC Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and UFC Interim Bantamweight Champion Renan Barao. Jose Aldo hopes to defend his UFC Featherweight title in the co-main event against Ricardo Lamas.
