UFC on Fuel 9 adds Tor Troeng vs. Adam Cella in battle of TUF cast members

UFC on Fuel 9 will feature a fight between two Ultimate Fighter cast members, as Adam Cella faces Tor Troeng. Get all the details here at Bloody Elbow.

The first UFC fight featuring members of this season of The Ultimate Fighter has been announced. The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen representatives Adam Cella (4-0) and Tor Troeng (15-4-1) will meet on April 6 at UFC on Fuel 9, according to MMA Junkie. The card airs from Stockholm, Sweden and features an Alexander Gustafsson vs. Gegard Mousasi main event.

Troeng should be the favorite here, as he was one of the early picks to go far on the show. As a member of Team Sonnen, he was paired with Josh Samman in the first round of fights and was KO'd by Samman in round 1. Cella was a member of Team Jones. He was on the receiving end of the vicious Uriah Hall KO, knocking him out of the competition.

One interesting aspect of this fight is that it will take place before the actual TUF Finale, which is set for April 13, meaning Troeng and Cella will be the first competitors from this season to have official UFC fights. Typically, the UFC holds off on bringing in TUF fighters until after the Finale, however in this case, they are likely looking to give Troeng a fight in front of his home country fans in Sweden.

The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen continues this Tuesday night on FX. Join us here at Bloody Elbow for live coverage.
