TUF 17 alum Dylan Andrews facing Papy Abedi in Indianapolis

TUF 17 alum Dylan Andrews facing Papy Abedi in Indianapolis

Though he didn’t enter the Ultimate Fighter 17 as a highly-touted prospect and was one of the competitors picked, UFC welterweight Dylan Andrews exited the process with a good deal of hype due to his showings, an overwhelming amount of heart, and a knockout win over Jimmy Quinlan in his first post-TUF tilt. The 33-year old will now have an opportunity to show he can be successful against non-castmates when he takes to the Octagon UFC on FS 2 for a fight with Papy Abedi.

UFC officials have confirmed the clash’s addition to the August 28 event. The show is headlined by a bout between Carlos Condit-Martin Kampmann with bouts like Sara McMann-Sarah Kaufman and Rafael dos Anjos-Donald Cerrone also on tap.

Andrews is 16-4 with eleven knockouts notched on his record. He is currently on a five-fight winning streak including four victories featuring a strike-based stoppage.

The 9-2 Abedi came up short in his first two UFC appearances but got back on track with a narrow outpointing of Besam Yousef last April. All but two of his wins have involved some form of finish.
