Two bouts added to The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America 3 Finale

A featherweight fight between Enrique Barzola and Chris Avila, and a bantamweight bout pitting Henry Briones vs. Douglas Silva de Andrade, have been added to The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America 3 Finale in Mexico.

The news was announced by UFC Español on Tuesday.

Barzola is returning to the octagon after losing a controversial split decision to Kyle Bochniak at UFC on FOX 21 back in August. Prior to that, the Peruvian fighter was coming off a unanimous decision win over Horacio Gutierrez, becoming the winner of the TUF: Latin America season two lightweight tournament. Barzola is 11-2-1 as a professional fighter.

His opponent, Avila, is looking for his first UFC win after losing in his debut against Artem Lobov at UFC 202 in August. The 23-year-old fighter, who trains with Nick and Nate Diaz, is 5-3 as a professional fighter.

In the bantamweight match, Briones will be making his return to the UFC after a series of injuries delayed him from competing in 2016. The Mexican fighter last fought at UFC 189 in July 2015 where he lost a unanimous decision to top contender Cody Garbrandt. Briones is 16-4-1 as a professional fighter and 1-1 in the UFC.

Andrade also finds himself in a similar situation being 1-1 in the UFC, and having not competed since 2015. The Brazilian's last appearance in the octagon was at UFC Fight Night 61 where he defeated Cody Gibson via unanimous decision. Andrade is 22-1 as a professional fighter.

The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America 3 Finale is set to take place on Nov. 5 at the Arena Ciudad de México in Mexico City, Mexico. Top lightweight contenders Rafael dos Anjos and Tony Ferguson are scheduled to headline the card.
