In what could be the largest-attended UFC event in the history of the company, UFC 243 extends Saturday from Marvel Stadium in??Melbourne, Australia. The middleweight title will be on the line as RobertThe Reaper Whittaker creates his next title defense, even while undefeated IsraelThe previous Stylebender Adesanya appears to swap his interim title for the actual strap. Adesanya, the challenger, is a little favored with the winner, Whittaker, coming back in -110.
The public has been over Adesanya because the introduction, to him today being the popular at -120 moving this line. Meanwhile, the champion Whittaker is getting slighted, in my estimation, and now is a underdog. This might be because The Reaper has fought just twice since while the Stylebender has been in the Octagon six times since his debut in February of this past year.
Despite being in the eye and carrying out a record, this can be the tightest line Adesanya has experienced in the UFC because his fight with Brad Tavares in July 2018 . As he has been a puppy of the nine middleweight bouts on the opposing side, if Whittaker closes as an underdog, then it will be nothing new to the champion.
Adesanya has a huge ability to place traps due to their rivals when they encounter those traps and throw straight drives that are strong. The Nigeria native kicks to maintain his opponents off-balance and does a excellent job of changing his assault and shifting stances. His takedown defense had been set to the test against Kelvin Gastelum his very last time he did well, just getting taken and keeping up a shield that kept him from danger.
The champion has a greater output of strikes compared to the challenger, however he will absorb more damage as well in doing this. That said, Whittaker has shown resiliency, having endured a knee injury that was fairly significant and breaking??his hands but he continued to battle and won the two bouts. Bobby Knuckles always disturbs his opponents and mixes up his strikes, sneaking head kicks behind fast right punches.
Seeing their last fights both I discovered some big issues which Whittaker could make the most of. After Adesanya fought Gastelum, he neglected to look at any leg bends and a couple got hurt and through him. When he had been in exchanges, he did not attract his hand to safeguard that side of his face, but he had been fortunate that punches were thrown by Gastelum. I think Whittaker place Adesanya in a manner that is terrible and will observe these things.
Prediction: Robert Whittaker (-110) via conclusion
