Robert Whittaker he’s been one of the hottest names this year, with two impressive UFC victories. A few months ago, the Australian destroyed Darren Till and left a very good image for his future. Now, on Saturday at UFC 254, he ended the illusions of Jared Cannonier and aspires to fight for the title in the first months of 2021. Without a doubt, the oceanic can collide again with Israel Adesanya, fight Dana White wants.
It’s a tough fight, man. I’m not happy to fight him. It’s a tough fight. He’s so good and he only looked better in his last fight, and the fact that he already beat me once. But I feel like I have a couple of tricks that I can implement. I feel like I can play differently this time. Without a doubt, I trust me for a new fight against him. If it happens, I will do my best to be able to liquidate it, ”the Australian began.
Robert wants more and that’s why he would accept the rematch: “Honestly, I know he’s trying to do everything else and it’s good that he does, I’m not thinking about him. Maybe he and I shouldn’t think about it just for a moment. It can go up to medium or heavy, it doesn’t bother me. My plans are Christmas, my baby, and then hopefully our deadlines line up. If this turns out to be so, glad to be able to face it once more.
Will they give him revenge?
«My old man drilled me, don’t be a sellout. If you have to sell yourself, don’t. Don’t be something you are not. I’d rather be myself as a bricklayer than someone else as a billionaire. Be yourself, you cannot compromise. You cannot break your own values. It needs to be you. I’ve always been me and I wouldn’t change that for anything. They raised me that way and I will always continue that way, whatever it may be, “he explained respectfully, focusing on his principles.
Closing with his sayings, Robert Whittaker admitted that he wishes to see faces with Israel Adesanya: «I want to fight with him some day. Either in my career or in the parking lot as two old men one day. I feel like our paths will cross again and as a warrior it’s something I have to do. But I don’t care who I’ll fight next. My whole mentality with this game is that you line them up, I’ll take them down. I’m pretty good at it.
