A fighter gets a surprise visit from world champion Ronda Rousey; two fighters face off trying to secure a spot in the final four. The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen (also known as The Ultimate Fighter 17) is the current installment of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)-produced reality television series The Ultimate Fighter. The series was officially announced by the UFC in October 2012 with current Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones coaching oppositeChael Sonnen. The two coaches are then scheduled to meet in a title fight on April 27, 2013. This move drew criticism from MMA critics and fans, as many felt that Sonnen, who had previously lost his last match and not competed in the UFC Light Heavyweight division in years, had not done enough to earn a title shot.

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.
