Season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter continues Tuesday (9 p.m. PT/ET on FX) with the middleweight tournament between Team Jones and Team Sonnen, and we're finally set for this season's wild-card bout.

In the ninth episode of the season, Kevin Casey aims to redeem himself against Bubba McDaniel, the most experienced member of the cast—and Jon Jones' training partner.

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

McDaniel's heavy 26-fight experience advantage wound up failing him in Episode 5 when he was routed via rear-naked choke in a surprising upset by 5-0 underdog Kelvin Gastelum.

Casey arguably put up a tougher fight in defeat against Colin Hart during Episode 4, but prior to that bout, McDaniel relentlessly hounded Casey for a match, seemingly desperate to face someone he viewed as a beatable opponent.

Now, both men will get a chance to settle their rivalry once and for all, along with possibly winning their way back into this season's tournament.

UPDATE: Check out the full episode recap and results right over here, with full impressions and thoughts on the wild card bout and its "shock" ending.
