UFC-Aussie-LogoThe Ultimate Fighter 17 teammates Dylan Andrews and Clint Hester are set to square off at UFC Fight Night 33 on Dec. 7 in Brisbane, Australia. The event airs on Dec. 6 in the U.S.

UFC officials announced the new bout on Monday.

Neither Andrews nor Hester made it into the finals of TUF 17.

Andrews (16-4, 1 no contest) has won two bouts in the UFC since emerging from the show. He defeated Jimmy Quinlan – who upset Hester on the show – and recently followed that by taking out Papy Abedi.

Hester (8-3) has only had one official fight in the Octagon, but he knocked out Bristol Marunde at the TUF 17 Finale.

The former teammates under coach Jon Jones will now face each other when the UFC heads to Brisbane. The UFC Fight Night 33 main event features Mark Hunt vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in a heavyweight showdown.
