Welcome to Midnight Mania!

After Robert Whittaker’s decisive victory over Jared Cannonier at UFC 254, Whittaker appeared to be next in line for the middleweight title. Dana White said a rematch made sense, and Whittaker expressed interest in facing Israel Adesanya again around March after spending the holiday season with his family.

However, the promotion chose to go in a different direction. Rather than let Adesanya defend his title again, he will weigh 205 pounds. and attempt to claim double champion status by eliminating Jan Blachowicz.
