UFC 243: Whittaker vs Adesanya – Tale of the Tape
Robert Whittaker was the Interim UFC World Middleweight Champion after he defeated Yoel Romero. Since December 7, 2017, he became the unified champion after Georges St-Pierre (GSP) announced that he is going to forfeit his title. 28-year-old Whittaker has achieved a lot but he now faces his biggest nemesis till date – Israel Adesanya.
Adesanya’s claim to fame has been his 17-0 win streak. Having never lost a professional MMA fight in his career, the big question heading into UFC 243: Whittaker vs Adesanya is – will the streak survive the night or will hometown hero Whittaker become the unified champ once again?
My hype for Whittaker vs. Adesanya is pretttttyyyyy high at the moment. October 5th needs to get here, quick. #UFC243
