UFC 243 Whittaker vs Adesanya – Tale of the Tape
Whittaker was the middleweight champion since 2017 when he defeated Yoel Romero for the title. Following his rematch against Romero next year, Whittaker had to undergo surgery – and he has since been out of action. Meanwhile, Israel Adesanya has emerged as the interim UFC Middleweight Champion and at UFC 243, this fight will decide who the unified champion is.
Israel’s win over Anderson Silva put him in the spotlight and he has since been the talk of the town. It will be interesting to see who wins Robert Whittaker vs Israel Adesanya once the two clash.
