Season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter continues Tuesday at 9 p.m. PT/ET on FX with the middleweight tournament between Team Jon Jones and Team Chael Sonnen—and we're getting into the home stretch.
With season villain Josh Samman scoring an upset, knockout win over Team Sonnen's Tor Troeng in Episode 6, things are set for Team Jones to even up the score with three wins apiece.
In order to do that, Clint Hester must put his powerful striking to the test against a stylistic challenge in undefeated grappler Jimmy Quinlan.
As Jon Jones' No. 1 pick, the matchup seems expected to move Hester along safely to the next round of the competition—but Chael Sonnen thinks otherwise.
In last week's episode, Sonnen made reference to Quinlan's ground game and how it gives him an immense tactical advantage. Will that make the difference and increase Team Sonnen's lead?
