Odds are even in UFC 243 main event

Adesanya (17-0) comes from a very high-level kickboxing background and has gone undefeated in his MMA career. Since making his debut in the Octagon in early 2018, “The Last Stylebender” has gone 6-0 under the UFC banner. Most recently Adesanya earned a unanimous decision and the interim title against Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 236. Five of his six outings, the New Zealander has earned a $50,000 bonus.

Whittaker (20-4) has been unstoppable since his 2014 loss to Stephen Thompson at UFC 170. Since that blemish, “Bobby Knuckles” has won nine in a row. He won back to back decisions over Yoel Romero to keep the undisputed middleweight championship around his waist.
