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.

Currently sporting a five-fight winning streak in which he has ended his last four victories by knockout, North Carolina's Brunson is on the fast track to the top of the 185-pound weight class. 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.
