Michael Phelps takes center stage on Tuesday night in Rio.

Can Michael Phelps get revenge and earn the gold in the men's 200-meter butterfly final? That's the big question on Tuesday night in Rio. Phelps is probably competing in his final Olympics this year, and he'll be looking to go out on top in an event he once dominated.

Phelps set the Olympic record in the 200-meter butterfly at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, then broke the world record in winning gold again at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He was heavily favored to pull off a three-peat in the event entering the 2012 Olympics in London, but shockingly finished second to South Africa's Chad le Clos.

Now Phelps has a chance to reclaim gold in Rio, and it's going to be appointment viewing during NBC's prime time coverage on Tuesday night. Phelps is the most decorated Olympian of all time, yet you know he's had this event circled on his calendar since getting beat by le Clos four years ago.

The night session in the pool begins at 9 p.m. ET. Other swimming finals on Tuesday night are the women's 200-meter freestyle, women's 200-meter individual medley and men's 4x200-meter freestyle relay.
