Fenton Man Will Fight to Win on MMA Reality TV Show

Adam Cella, of Fenton, was announced as one of 28 professional fighters to participate in the upcoming season of "Ultimate Fighter" on FX.

A Fenton man was announced Wednesday as one of 28 participants to spar in the upcoming season of FX's "Ultimate Fighter," which debuts Jan. 22.

Middleweight fighter Adam Cella, of Fenton, who trains at Finney's MMA in Crestwood, will compete against international contestants for the chance to earn an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) contract.  

The 27-year-old is 4-0 in his professional MMA career and also has dabbled in kickboxing. Cella, who grew up in Imperial, told Knuckle Junkies last year it was his "goal to get on TV."

This season's contestants will be coached by current UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and contender Chael Sonne.

Watch "Ultimate Fighter" at 7 p.m. Jan. 22. The two-hour season debut will whittle the 28 prospects down to 14 season cast members.
