Israel Adesanya vs. Robbie Whittaker

Israel Adesanya is undefeated in the middleweight division. He defended his title 3 times after dethroning Robert. Adesanya dominated against Romero, knocked out Paulo Costa, and defeated Marvin Vettori for the second time. The last battle against the Italian fighter was really impressive. After being beaten up by Blachowicz, everyone thought it was easy to defeat Adesanya. However, it was tough for Vettori to hold him on the ground. Vettori is an outstanding wrestler and grappler, but Adesanya is learning fast, and his long limbs help him a lot to be effective on the ground, too.

Robert Whittaker is a phenomenal fighter. If Adesanya did not exist, he would be champion for 100%. He defeated Romero twice in his prime; after being dethroned by Adesanya, he did not give up. He said that he was not planning to go anywhere, and he did it. Robert earned 3 victories in a row and dominated against guys like Darren Till, Jared Cannonier, and Kelvin Gastelum. He showed massive grappling and wrestling skills, too, in addition to his fantastic Karate style.

From my point of view, this is one of the hardest battles to predict. Even though everyone thinks Adesanya will KO Whittaker again, it can not be that simple. Adesanya is great, but if Whittaker remains calm for all 5 rounds, I think he got the chance of earning the victory. I believe that, with the correct strategy, Whittaker will defeat Adesanya. First of all, Robert should not rush, he should be equally answering to Adesanya strikers, and I think he needs to “Steal” rounds by his takedowns. The winning of Adesanya has the odds of 1.3, while Whittaker’s victory’s odds are more than 3.0.

In a risky bet, I would add Robert because 3 is amazing odds for him, but in a more realistic bet, I would not add Adesanya since I don’t believe that he is hungry enough for calm Whittaker.
