Potential Title Match
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.
