  • This man looks really cool especially going into a fight week...all I see is someone super relaxed,confident and yet not cocky....a real family man.....now that Jared cannonier is out of the way...I wish u good luck in your next fight,hopefully it's not against Izzy...but good luck against any other fighter in UFC.

  • Whittaker is a prince of a guy, no? What a civil, funny, and keenly self aware fighter. Politics? He is gonna keep his star after Adesanya is just a former champ.

  • I think this guy deserve another chance against adesanya I watched his fight vs adesanya he was so slow and not in good shap but in his two last fight he surprised me with his speed and game plan he made his opponent so confuse .

  • This guy beats every middleweight in the ufc rn... Except izzy, and j think he knows it, far from saying he's scared of izzy, I think he'll fight izzy and give it 100% but I think he knows deep down that izzy is a level above and he's gonna need to be hella lucky. Rob is one of the nicest dudes in the ufc and arguably a kinder and more forgiving man than izzy but I just don't see him winning. Even the new improved Rob that beat till and cannonier.

  • I think the pandemic social distancing which there is no crowd is a challenge for fighters mentality.

    JBJBUukausi sitten
  • Good man, I think he needs to keep staying active and keep adding things to his game. Izzy is just too good in mid range and long range, only way to maybe catch him is to fight him in the pocket, but Whittaker is a blitz fighter and that just wouldn't work against Izzy who has insane radar. If Whittaker can fix the blitz, he can give him trouble

  • I'd love to see a rematch, and to see Whitaker take the belt back would be amazing, I feels hes much more humble and appears much more grounded than Adesanya.

  • I believe he has very little chance of beating Izzy... Anderson Silva passed the baton to Adesanya and rightfully so.. But Whittaker is not so bad as a Top 2 Middleweight for a very long time. He is like a DC to Jon Jones or a Porier to Khabib. A guy that is clearly a very good fighter and better than Top 3 onwards of the division.. But sadly, can never have the topple the top dog because the top guy is an all-time great.

  • This guy was undefeated in the UFC, claimed a belt. Defended the belt, lost the belt and still isnt even 30! Reaper is ruthless, I really hope he takes this one

  • Roberts right - I would honestly rather have my knee tore apart by an oblique kick than have ANY of the bones in my face or skull smashed by a punch (except maybe my nose). Even with reconstructive surgery I can just imagine all the headaches and pain an injury like that much cause... permanently. Would much rather have a ruined knee. Even if bad knees are painful it's not the same kind of pain.
