Nigeria’s Israel Adesanya has defeated Robert Whittaker with a unanimous decision (48-47, 48-47, 49-46) in the main event of UFC 271 on Saturday night at Toyota Center.
This is the second time Adesanya will clash with Whittaker, his arch-rival at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
Whittaker got a chance at revenge on Sunday morning but failed.
Adesanya employed his length and reach to counter Whittaker’s boxing, ensuring he left the Octagon with his middleweight belt.
