Israel Adesanya vs Robert Whittaker to headline UFC 271
In the night’s main event, Israel Adesanya will put his middleweight title on the line against former rival Robert Whittaker.
Whittaker will enter the rematch at UFC 271 looking to reclaim the middleweight title he lost to ‘The Last Stylebender’ more than two years ago at UFC 243. ‘The Reaper’ is running high entering the bout, having scored a trio of hard-fought unanimous decision wins through 2020-2021 over some of the top contenders in the division, including Darren Till, Jared Cannonier, and Kelvin Gastelum.
Whittaker also appears to be a more well-rounded fighter than he was in his previous meeting with Adesanya.
Meanwhile, the champion has also shown steady improvements in his own game. Adesanya has also displayed improvements in his takedown defense in his recent bout against Marvin Vettori after failing against Jan Blachowicz at UFC 259.
Many believe that Whittaker’s best chance at reclaiming the middleweight crown will be to utilize his grappling against the champion, but he could be in for a rough ride.
