A middleweight matchup between "The Ultimate Fighter 17" cast member Dylan Andrews (16-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Swedish contender Papy Abedi (9-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) is the latest addition to the UFC on FOX Sports 1 2 event.

UFC officials today announced the new booking, which sees Abedi move up to 185 pounds after three fights in the octagon at welterweight. The bout was originally reported by Australian news outlet MMA Kanvas.

Featuring a welterweight rematch between Carlos Condit and Martin Kampmann, UFC on FOX Sports 1 2 takes place Aug. 28 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Looks like a good old fashioned throw down!

Very winnable fight for Andrews. Abedi barely won his last fight and could easily be 0-3 in the UFC.

Abedi's perhaps the worst fighter in the UFC right now...

Dylan Andrews is the next James Te Huna, he'll go 4-0 with 4 KO's but his ground game will still be as good as the average British MMA fighter. It also doesn't help that he looks like a less banged up Te Huna, is Australian and is a Brawler...

Why does Abedi get described as a contender?

In this day and age of the UFC, it seems everyone is a contender.
