The main event is Israel Adesanya is aiming to defend his middleweight title for the fourth time. While undefeated in his division, he did beat Jan Błachowicz last March when he was trying to move up the heavyweight division and have a chance at the light heavyweight title. He recovered from that loss and successfully defended his middleweight title a few months later, so he’s still the man to beat. Whittaker will be well aware that Adesanya has beaten him before, and will hope that his strong wrestling will derail Adesanya’s striking ability.
