Report: Robert Whittaker vs. Israel Adesanya Is In Works For UFC 243 On October 6

Robert Whittaker vs. Israel Adesanya Is Reportedly Being Planned For UFC 243 On October 6 In Australia

UFC is planning to book a title unification bout between division’s champion Robert Whittaker and interim titleholder Israel Adesanya at UFC 243 PPV event on October 6 from inside the Bankwest Stadium in Sydney, Australia according to a news outlet MMADNA.nl.

Earlier this month UFC president Dana White had confirmed that Israel Adesanya who captured an interim title after defeating Kelvin Gastelum in an epic five-round war at UFC 236 would be challenging Whittaker in Australia.

Nothing is official as of yet but keep an eye as developments are underway.

Since capturing a UFC interim middleweight title back in 2017 later promoted to undisputed champion Robert Whittaker has continuously been dealing with medical issues. First, a knee injury against Yoel Romero put him on the shelf for several months. His title defense bouts at UFC 221 and UFC 224 canceled, first one due to a staph infection and second one after ‘Reaper’ underwent emergency surgery for a collapsed bowel and hernia repair on the fight day.

Whittaker is currently recovering but looking forward to a title unification bout.
