Preview: Israel Adesanya vs Robert Whittaker 2
It has been nearly three years since Adesanya (21-1-0) first claimed the UFC’s middleweight interim title by defeating Max Holloway at UFC 236. He unified the division with a victory over the champion, Whittaker (24-5-0) that October at UFC 243 in the main event of the evening. Adesanya ended Whittaker’s night ended early with a second-round KO, placing him among the UFC’s best.
That loss sent The Reaper back in the rotation where he fought three bouts since then to earn another shot, going undefeated in the stretch. Adesanya, on the other hand, has taken four fights in that time, going 3-1, but remaining undefeated at middleweight. His loss came at the hands of former light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz in what was a title fight at the time. It was a rough test for The Last Stylebender, losing the bout by unanimous decision, but he rebounded well last summer with his latest defense in a rematch against Marvin Vettori.
Saturday’s title fight will be about the power as both athletes bring knockout potential. Adesanya will once again have the size advantage thanks to its lengthy frame. He’ll stand four inches above Whittaker while enjoying over six inches in reach. Adesanya is a decent favorite at the betting window, drawing -280 odds at the time of this article on Friday morning.
