It is literally meaningless to win a season of TUF nowadays, with that value decreasing even further when it’s one of those international seasons that take place in some underground bunker in Antarctica. But Robert Whittaker took his top TUF credentials and, after a couple losses, got a pretty decent win streak going.
And now he’s headlining UFC Fight Night 101 in Australia on Saturday as a result of it.
Sure, the rest of the card is so thin it might be considered anorexic, but hey, this guy – and opponent Derek Brunson – can bang. That should count for something.
