court-mcgee-11.jpgThe UFC’s return to Indianapolis continues to take shape with the addition of a welterweight fight between a pair of “TUF” winners.

Court McGee (14-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC) will meet Robert Whittaker (11-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) at UFC on FOX Sports 1 2 in Indianapolis this August. UFC officials announced the bout on Wednesday.

UFC on FOX Sports 1 2 takes place Aug. 28 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in the Indiana capital city. The event’s main card will air on FOX Sports 1, which debuts on Aug. 17 with UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 in Boston.

UFC on FOX Sports 1 2 will be headlined by a welterweight rematch between Carlos Condit and Martin Kampmann, and the co-main event, announced earlier in the day Wednesday, is a lightweight fight between Donald Cerrone and Rafael dos Anjos.

McGee, the Season 11 winner of “The Ultimate Fighter,” made his welterweight debut in February and took a unanimous decision from Josh Neer at UFC 157. Prior to that, he had dropped back-to-back fights at middleweight to Constantinos Philippou and Nick Ring following a 3-0 start to his UFC career.

Whittaker was the welterweight winner of the recent U.K. vs. Australia international edition of “TUF,” winning “The Smashes” with a unanimous decision against U.K. fighter Brad Scott in December. Just 10 days ago at UFC 160 in Las Vegas, he fought “TUF 16? winner Colton Smith and won with a third-round knockout. So fighting fellow former “TUF” winners will not be anything new to him. He has won four of his past five fights.

With the addition, the latest UFC on FOX Sports 1 2 card includes:
