Robert Whiteford will put his 10-fight win streak on the line vs. Jimy Hettes this weekend at UFC Fight Night 30, officials announced.
Whiteford replaces Mike Wilkinson on a weeks notice, as the card goes down Saturday from England’s Manchester Arena. It features a middleweight contest between Lyoto Machida and Mark Munoz.
Whiteford (10-1) lost his MMA debut, but has rebounded since, including six finishes in his last 10 wins. Hettes (10-1) is 2-1 with the UFC.
