Israel Adesanya explains why he takes revenge on Robert Whittaker “seriously”


MMA – Israel Adesanya gives the difference between Robert Whittaker and his previous opponents.

After the imbroglio over signing his contract, Israel Adesanya seems ready for revenge against Robert Whittaker. The two men will face each other once again on February 12, at UFC 271.

Despite his KO victory in the first act, Adesanya remains suspicious and approaches this next challenge with a lot of motivation. As he explains in a video posted to his YouTube channel, Whittaker never looked for an apology after his setback. And it is precisely this acceptance of defeat that makes him a dangerous adversary.

“He doesn’t look for excuses like Vettori or Costa,” says Adesanya. “On the contrary, he accepted his defeat. He finally admitted that I was in his head. He was emotional and I was like, “Yeah, you finally admitted what I’ve been saying all this fucking time.” So I take him seriously because he has things to prove. This is what makes me get up in the morning. Make him shut his mouth, and even more severely than the first time. “

By beating Whittaker in UFC 243, Adesanya grabbed the Middleweight belt. Since then, the Nigerian has defended his property three times. He also attempted the brace by going for Jan Blachowicz in light heavyweight, but the Pole inflicted him the first defeat of his career.

For his part, Whittaker reacted very well to the loss of his title. While he seemed psychologically tested, the Australian went up the slope and went on to three wins by decision. The most recent dates back to April, against Kelvin Gastelum.
