TUF 17 Fighters Tor Troeng, Adam Cella To Meet At UFC On FUEL TV 9

Despite the finals of The Ultimate Fighter 17 not taking place until the middle of April, two fighters from the ongoing season have booked a fight, as Tor Troeng will square off with Adam Cella.

The Swedish MMA site confirmed the bout for UFC on FUEL TV: Gustafsson vs. Mousasi on April 6. The card goes down from Stockholm, Sweden and will provide a return to his home country for Troeng.

Troeng (15-4-1) was picked as a favorite in the early going on TUF, but was defeated by Josh Samman in the preliminary round.

Cella (4-0) suffered a loss to Uriah Hall in his prelim match. Neither fighter were selected for the wild-card spot on the show, which granted another chance to reach the quarterfinals to two members.

Coaches Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen selected Bubba McDaniel and Kevin Casey for the final fight.
