UFC 243: Whittaker v Adesanya

The undisputed UFC middleweight title will be on the line on October 6 when 185-pound (84kg) champion Robert Whittaker faces unbeaten interim titleholder Israel Adesanya in the main event of UFC 243 at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne. 

New Zealand born Australian, Whittaker has been sidelined since the second of two epic battles with Yoel Romero, but he gets his chance to cement his place as the best middleweight in the world when he takes on New Zealand’s Israel Adesanya.

Adesanya’s status as one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC was confirmed following his last fight against Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 236.

Adesanya emerged victorious after five brutal rounds, winning by unanimous decision to claim the title of interim middleweight champion.

Off the back of making his mark on the middleweight division, Israel Adesanya’s next fight against Whittaker is set to be the biggest UFC event in Oceania.

The trash-talking Kiwi known as the ‘Last Stylebender’ will be hoping to put on another show across the ditch in Melbourne.
