Two new welterweight bouts have joined the second UFC on Fox Sports 1 bill, as Robert Whittaker faces Court McGee and Justin Edwards meets Brandon Thatch.

UFC officials recently revealed the fights, which will be contested on Aug. 28 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The event will be headlined by a welterweight rematch pitting former interim champion Carlos Condit against Martin Kampmann and will also see Donald Cerrone clash with fellow 155-pound standout Rafael dos Anjos in the co-main event.

Whittaker introduced himself to fans as a cast member of “The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes,” winning the show’s welterweight tournament. Following his victory over Brad Scott in the show’s final this past December, the 22-year-old Aussie returned to the Octagon on May 25, knocking out “TUF 16” winner Colton Smith at UFC 160.

McGee, 28, has posted a 4-2 record since joining the UFC as a middleweight contestant on “TUF 11.” After winning the reality series by submitting Kris McCray, “The Crusher” rattled off consecutive victories before suffering back-to-back defeats that prompted a drop to welterweight. McGee returned to his winning ways in his 170-pound debut, taking a unanimous decision from veteran Josh Neer this past February at UFC 157.

Another “Ultimate Fighter” vet, Edwards, 30, has gone 2-2 in his UFC career, most recently putting Neer to sleep with a guillotine choke this past October at UFC on FX 5. Thatch, meanwhile, makes his UFC foray riding an eight-fight winning streak. The 27-year-old last competed on March 22, when he submitted Roufusport rep Mike Rhodes with a rear-naked choke under the Resurrection Fighting Alliance banner.
