The Ultimate Fighter 17, Ep. 6 Live Play-by-Play: Tor Troeng vs. Josh Samman
Can Team Jones' Josh Samman (right) overcome various injuries to defeat Swedish slugger Tor Troeng?

Season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter continues Tuesday night at 9 p.m. PT/ET on FX with the middleweight tournament between Team Jon Jones and Team Chael Sonnen, and MMA fans are in for a real treat tonight.

In one of the most evenly-matched bouts of the season, Team Sonnen's Tor Troeng will attempt to put away Team Jones' Josh Samman in a highly-anticipated battle.

Compared to their teammates, Troeng and Samman are two of the season's highest ranked fighters, carrying an impressive 24-6-1 record between both of their respective careers.

(Check out the full list of competitors and team rosters.)

As such, both men are so dangerous that many of the other cast competitors have outright avoided fighting them, as Sonnen candidly pointed out in Episode 5 when he set-up the match (read the full episode recap here).

However, Team Jones' No. 2 pick may be going into the fight with injuries, as Jones and his coaching staff have noticed Samman's frequent attempts to manipulate their match order.

'Question is, can Team Sonnen's elite Swedish capitalize against the series' villain?
