The Return of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Volkanovski vs. Team Ortega, also known as The Ultimate Fighter 29, is set to return on Tuesday, June 1.

The coaches for this season are featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski and No. 2 contender Brian Ortega, who will face off later this year at the conclusion of the season.

The show had been on a brief hiatus but is set to return with a cast of eight bantamweights and eight middleweights who will be competing for a spot on the UFC roster.

Among the most recognizable names on the cast is Vince Murdock. Murdock previously signed to the UFC, but a brain injury stopped him from making his debut. After stumbling on Dana White’s Contender Series, the UFC decided to bring him back for another opportunity on TUF.

Who will be competing on the return season?
