Ultimate Fighter Winners Colton Smith-Robert Whittaker Added To UFC 160

Recent Ultimate Fighter winners Colton Smith and Robert Whittaker will square off at UFC 160 in May, according to UFC officials.

Smith claimed the most recent TUF title in December, downing Mike Ricci. The former Iowa High School wrestling standout is now 3-1 in his MMA career.

Whittaker (10-2) captured the TUF: The Smashes title, topping Brad Scott in 2012. He has five submission wins to his credit, and will enter the Octagon as the more experienced fighter.

Smith will need to use his precision wrestling to keep Whittaker at bay, especially with the experience factor playing in.

The card takes place May 25 from Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. Placement of the fight on the lineup is currently unknown.
