It wasn't Forrest Griffin vs. Stephan Bonnar, but it was close.

Fighting in the finals of The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes, Robert Whittaker and Brad Scott went to battle, trading combinations and barrages for three rounds until time ran out on them.

"The contract is a bonus, but the real joy was defending my country and making everyone proud," said the Aussie.

Just 21 years old, Whittaker showed a mature presence, particularly in the third by taking over to ensure the victory after a close second.

He was the more powerful and accurate striker throughout. He knocked Scott down in the first and swarmed for the finish, but Scott covered up and survived the onslaught. He showed good durability throughout, at one point eating a head kick and shrugging it off.

In the second, Scott turned the tide with a takedown. He got Whittaker's back and looked to sink in a choke, but Whittaker was able to work free. That turned out to be Scott's best chance as Whittaker controlled the third, using a standing right elbow strike as his featured weapon.

Whittaker improved to 10-2, while Scott dropped to 8-2.
