Anne-Marie Sorvin-US PRESSWIRE

The main card of tonight's (Wed., Aug. 28, 2013) UFC Fight Night 27: "Condit vs. Kampmann 2" event in Indianapolis, Indiana, featured a gang of Ultimate Fighter veterans, including a welterweight showdown pitting Court McGee (winner of season 11) vs. Robert Whittaker (winner of the TUF: Smashes).

True to form, McGee came out throwing blows, unloading with kicks and punches just as soon as he touched gloves with his opponent. He was effective too, landing hard shots from every angle and even staggering Whittaker in the second round.

His aggression was all it took to neutralize his foe's power striking.

Well, that might be overly nice. McGee took his lumps, and even suffered a cut under his eye. Late in the second, Whittaker started really firing off with shots that were landing with more and more frequency. His high volume game was wearing McGee down.

The final frame was an absolute war. The two traded blows leading to an extremely close decision that ultimately went to McGee via split decision.
