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.

The fight was very close, so much that the crowd booed the decision, thinking Whittaker was the rightful winner.

“I didn’t feel any threat at all,” said Adesanya, 31, after getting a comfortable unanimous decision.
