The long-awaited rematch between UFC champions Israel Adesanya and Robert Whittaker will finally take place early next year.
Adesanya knocked out the Whittaker in front of 57,000 fans at the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne in October 2019.
Whitaker recovered from the defeat and there was no doubt in the UFC matchmaker’s mind that he deserved a rematch.
Australia’s favorite has defeated Darren Till of the United Kingdom, Jared Cannonier of the United States and Kelvin Gastelum to win three consecutive victories.
Adesanya has only one loss in his professional MMA career against Jan Blawowic on a light heavyweight belt in early 2021.
Pound for Pound No. 3 outperformed Paulo Costa in Brazil and dominated challenger Marvin Vettori.
The Adesanya-Wittaka Championship match will take place at UFC 271 in Australia.
