Uriah Hall and Josh Samman are the favorites to win TUF 17. But will they get to the finals?

Season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter concludes Tuesday (9 p.m. PT/ET on FX) with the middleweight tournament between Team Jones and Team Sonnen—and we're officially in the final four.

Beginning with 28 potential competitors at the start of the latest season, the last episode in the show now features the best of the bunch—heavy favorite Uriah Hall vs. Dylan Andrews and the villainous Josh Samman vs. surprise knockout artist Kelvin Gastelum.

(Check out the team rosters and the list of quarterfinalists.)

In fact, so much focus has been placed on the actual fights, coaches Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen have largely taken a back seat as the TUF cast battled for a chance in the UFC.

Can Andrews survive against Hall? Does Gastelum, the youngest fighter in TUF history, have the power to put down Samman in a huge upset?

UPDATE: Check out the full episode recap and results right over here, with full impressions and thoughts on the Hall vs. Andrews and Samman vs. Gastelum semifinals matches.
