Last updated

Former UFC Middleweight contender Robert Whittaker recently spoke to ESPN. The 185 pound star discussed a number of topics during the interview, including a potential rematch against division Champion Israel Adesanya.

‘It’s hard to say, the UFC and Izzy have all the power,’ Whittaker said to ESPN regarding a second shot at Adesanya. ‘So I’m just looking at this as it’s how I make a living, this is my job and I love my job, I enjoy making a living providing for my family like this.”

“So I’m just going to do my thing, I’m going to work hard, earn my money, and then I’m going to enjoy time with my family and the lifestyle that it provides me” Whittaker continued.

Robert Whittaker also discussed Adesanya’s recent loss to Light Heavyweight Champion Jan Blachowicz; saying that when he gets a shot at Adesanya he couldn’t necessarily use the same game plan. ‘Perhaps, perhaps, it’s very hard to adapt the plans without (Blachowicz’s) power.”

“But we’ve got to wait and see how Izzy comes back down to middleweight,’ Whittaker stated. ‘I’ve got a couple of things up my sleeve I’m looking to try next time we cross paths, so we’ll wait and see.’
