'The Reaper' seems like an overwhelming nickname for the undisputed 'nice guy' Robert Whittaker. Nevertheless, his personality outside of the octagon shouldn't be mixed up with his fighting skills. The Australian started his MMA journey in 2008 with Australia's Xtreme Fighting Championship.


Whittaker got his first breakthrough in the 2012 season of The Ultimate Fighter. The highlight of his campaign was when he knocked out Luke Newman in 19 seconds of Round 1. He was awarded the 'Knockout of the Season' bonus. Whittaker made his UFC debut against Brad Scott to determine the winner of the TUF welterweight tournament. Whittaker won the fight via unanimous decision.


With two losses and two wins, his career as a welterweight in the UFC was underwhelming. After the win against Mike Rhodes, Whittaker decided to move up a weight class. Looking back at it, the decision was absolutely on the money. So far, Whittaker has won twelve and only lost thrice as a middleweight.


Outside of the octagon, Robert is married to Sofia Whittaker. Let's get to know more about 'Mrs. Reaper' as she cheekily refers to herself.
