Fresh from his first-round knockout of Uriah Hall last Saturday, middleweight contender Derek Brunson will travel to Melbourne, Australia on Nov. 26 (November 27 local time) to face local hero Robert Whittaker in a UFC Fight Night bout at Rod Laver Arena.

On an equally impressive hot streak is Sydney's Whittaker, whose own five-fight win streak includes victories over Hall, Brad Tavares and Rafael Natal.
