UFC 243 Whittaker vs Adesanya: The Story So Far
When one looks at the careers of both these men, Whittaker has seen quite a few ups and downs – including a recent injury which forced him out of action. Following him going out of UFC to heal the injury, Israel Adesanya became the interim UFC World Middleweight Champion. However, now that the original champ is back, this fight will determine who the unified champion is!
Stakes are high for both the men as Whittaker fights in his first fight back, that too in his home country! For Israel Adesanya, the fight is all about ensuring his undefeated streak is not broken and he ends the night at 18-0 rather than at 17-1.
Side note, Whittaker gonna smoke Adesanya. #UFC243
