Another Australian has been added to the UFC Fight Night 33 card, which goes down in Brisbane on December 7th. TUF Smashes winner Robert Whittaker will face off with former Strikeforce fighter Brian Melancon. MMA Kanvas originally reported the news, which was confirmed by the UFC's Australia twitter account.
Whittaker (11-3) picked up wins in his first two official UFC bouts, beating Brad Scott to win TUF Smashes and stopping TUF 15 winner Colton Smith by TKO. He dropped a decision to former TUF winner Court McGee in his last trip to the octagon. He is originally from New Zealand but fights out of Australia.
