Ultimate Fighter: Smashes welterweight winner, Robert Whittaker suffered his first loss in the UFC at Fight Night 27, ending up on the losing side of a hard-fought split decision against Court McGee. The loss snapped a two-fight win streak, which included wins over Brad Scott and Colton Smith.

Brian Melancon proved ring rust isn’t always a factor in his UFC debut, upsetting Seth Baczynski with a first round knockout victory after nearly a two-year layoff from the sport. His sophomore appearance in the octagon didn’t go as well against Ultimate Fighter 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum, submitting to a rear naked choke at the halfway mark of the first round at UFC Fight Night 27.
