Current UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is undefeated and has a 20-0-0 record. Most recently, he faced Paulo Costa in the main UFC 253 event and defended his crown in style. He defeated ‘Borrachinha’ in a spectacular way and left him unconscious just minutes after the start of the second round.
Adesanya is determined to prove herself. He has repeatedly targeted the so-called “beasts” of his division and always prevailed. Given its undisputed dominance, it wants to fall again in 2020.
Robert Whittaker will face Jared Cannonier in the UFC 254 co-main event. The winner of this game will most likely face Adesanya for the title. But after White fought Whittaker a year ago, will White bring them together again?
Dana White sets the conditions for the rematch
Speaking to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, Dana White answered exactly that question. He said, “I think Adesanya was brilliant in the way he played this thing and in the guys he fought against. Costa got injured and couldn’t fight so he says I want Romero … He’s considered one of the toughest, meanest guys in the division and I want him. Get out there and do your thing. “
White added “Now he’s looking at Cannonier, but if Whittaker comes out of this fight and looks impressive, Whittaker has broken all kinds of pay-per-view records against Adesanya in Australia and New Zealand. Then Adesanya comes back and beats Costa and breaks the New Zealand record again. “
The UFC President concluded “A rematch between Whittaker and Adesanya is massive for this region. I think he has to come out next weekend and do a show, so Whittaker. “
Dana White does not write off Robert Whittaker as a likely number one contender. Hence the ball is on his side of the court and it’s all on ‘The Reaper’ to win a rematch for his middleweight title. See Whittaker beat Jared Cannonier at UFC 254?
