Andrews will be looking to continue a successful start to his UFC career, having gone 2-0 in his first two bouts for the promotion, picking up knockout victories over Jimmy Quinlan (3-1) and Papy Abedi (9-3) respectively. Andrews is likely to be a popular figure among the Brisbane crowd, with the New Zealand born Andrews now residing in Australia.
Hester meanwhile also made a winning start to his UFC career, by defeating Bristol Marunde via third round TKO back in April, 2013. Hester was originally scheduled to take on Cezar Ferreira (6-2) at UFC 163, but had to withdraw from the bout due to injury.
