Now that we know Uriah Hall and Kelvin Gastellum are fighting in the final of "The Ultimate Fighter" on Saturday, it's time to look at the other TUF match-ups. As is the tradition, castmembers from the show will face off at the finale, though most of their bouts are on the preliminary card airing on Fuel. Whether you didn't watch the show or just forgot how it all went down, here's how each fighter did on the show.

Robert "Bubba" McDaniel vs. Gilbert Smith: This is the one bout that made the main card, and I'm not sure why. Smith was knocked out in his first round fight. McDaniel was choked out by by one finalist and knocked out by another. His one win came when Kevin Casey quit on the chair before the third round.

Kevin Casey vs. Josh Samman: Coming into the show, Casey was best known for filming a rap video with reality TV has-been Spencer Pratt. Now, he's known as the guy who lost to Collin Hart and then couldn't continue for a third round against McDaniel. He's taking on Samman, the semifinalist who was shocked by Gastellum.

Luke Barnatt vs. Collin Hart: Barnatt was on both ends of memorable knockouts. He took out Smith in the first round, but then was stopped by Dylan Andrews in the quarterfinals. Hart won in the first round with a decision over Casey, but was knocked out by Gastellum in the quarters.

Dylan Andrews vs. Jimmy Quinlan: It will be fun to watch Andrews fight again. As the last fighter picked, he was the surprise of the tournament with a first round decision win over Zak Cummings and a memorable third-round knockout of Luke Barnatt. He was finally stopped by the Hall buzzsaw, but will get another chance to show off his skills against Quinlan, who won his first round with a knockout of Tor Troeng, but was stopped by Samman in the quarterfinals.

Clint Hester vs. Bristol Marunde: Hester was Jon Jones' first pick, but lost in an upset when he was submitted by Quinlan in the first round. He's getting another chance to prove his potential in a bout with Marunde, a Strikeforce fighter who lost to Ronaldo Souza in his last bout.
