The Ultimate Fighting Championship has revealed the 14-man cast for “The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption,” and there are some familiar faces present.

Everyone competing on the latest iteration of the long-running reality series has appeared on a previous season of “TUF.” Some notable names include former lightweight title challenger Joe Stevenson, “TUF 19” winner Eddie Gordon and James Krause, who is currently on the UFC roster and has won his last two fights within the Las Vegas-based promotion (online betting).

The winner of “TUF 25” will receive a UFC contract and a $250,000 prize. The show premieres April 19 on Fox Sports 1 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. The finalists will meet at the “TUF 25” finale in July.

Bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt and former titlist T.J. Dillashaw will serve as opposing coaches on the show before squaring off in a title bout in July as well.
