Robert Whittaker vs. Derek Brunson
Both competitors are on a 5-fight winning streak; however, the argument can be made that Derek Brunson has faced the stiffer competition than has Robert Whittaker. Brunson also brings a fundamental wrestling base that Whittaker has not seen in recent memory that warrants a look at Brunson @ -140.
