Israel Adesanya Gets Brutally Honest About Robert Whittaker

Every passing UFC fight makes Israel Adesanya look more and more like a middleweight title challenger… And as of now, he’s only had four. 

Potential Title Match 

On Monday,

Whittaker Vs Adesanya 


Speaking to Fox Sports Australia, the young ‘Stylebender’ is confident to break the middleweight champ’s eight-fight winning streak. Adesanya also sees himself as the future of the division.

“I beat him wherever I want. If I’m being frank, Rob is lacking defensively and that’s where I’ll take him. And I can do that any way I want. I know he’s a fighter who wants to go out there and bust people up, but I’m not a guy you mess with.”

“Once I’m champion, there will be a lot more eyes on this division. I’m the guy making s*** happen.”


White’s assessment of the ‘kid’ isn’t far from how he sees himself as a potential game-changer.
