A pair of TUF 17 fighters are due to meet at UFC on FUEL TV 9 as Adam Cella and Tor Troéng will face off. The bout will likely land on the Facebook preliminary card. Troéng revealed the news to local media in his home nation, with Swedish MMA site mmaytt.com reporting the bout as well.
Both Cella and Troéng were knocked out in the preliminary round of TUF 17. Team Sonnen’s Tor Troéng was knocked out by Team Jones’ Josh Samman in the show’s sixth episode. Prior to the knockout, Troéng was considered as one of the show’s true dark horses to make the final.
Adam Cella is undefeated as a professional fighter but was on the receiving end of one of the most vicious knockouts in recent memory when he faced Uriah Hall on the show.
UFC on FUEL TV 9 is scheduled for the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on April 6. Last year’s UFC: Sweden set attendance records for the arena after selling out in three hours. This year’s card will be headlined by a light heavyweight duel between contenders Alexander Gustafsson and Gegard Mousasi. The event sold out in less than three hours.
