UFC President Dana White told when the rematch might occur between UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and Australian Robert Whittaker.

That’s a fight we want to make, so we’re working on it. I will get that done. That’s what we’re working on – we’re working on January. You know what sucks? With everything that’s going on right now, when you think about that fight, that fight should be done over there (in Australia or New Zealand). But that ain’t going to happen. Listen, I don’t like to be all cocky and sh*t, but we will do everything in our power to get that stuff worked out.
