Midnight Mania! Robert Whittaker denies Dana White claim, will chase Israel Adesanya at lightweight


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.
