Can Team Jones avoid going 0-3 against Team Sonnen?
Can Team Jones avoid going 0-3 against Team Sonnen?

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 things are looking dire for the UFC's light heavyweight champion.

In Episode 3, Uriah Hall announced himself as the fighter to beat with a sickeningly violent head kick KO victory over Adam Cella, moving Team Sonnen to 2-0 in the first-round bracket.

Thankfully, Cella eventually regained his senses, but was nonetheless sent to the hospital (with Jones in tow) to check for brain damage. That left Sonnen running things solo as he made the next matchup of the season, pitting Kevin Casey against Collin Hart.

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

For the first time in the season so far, a Team Sonnen fighter has been paired off with a higher-ranked opponent based on roster picks, but the biggest issue facing Casey is whether or not a cut over his eye will affect his bout. Can he push Team Sonnen to a perfect 3-0 and retain control of the fight picks?

UPDATE: Check out the full episode recap right over here, with impressions and thoughts on the match.
