We could see one of the fights of the year this weekend at UFC 243 as middleweights Robert Whittaker and Israel Adesanya go head-to-head to unify the Middleweight division in Melbourne on October 6, with the event getting underway on BT Sport at 6am UK time.

Both have unblemished records over the last few years, but Whittaker has been out of the octagon for over a year, which is just about giving the edge to his opponent who has beaten both Anderson Silva and Kelvin Gastelum this year.

The Nigerian is priced at 10/11 with Paddy Power, with Whittaker at 4/5 in a fight which really couldn’t be any more finely poised.

How The Fight Will Be Won

It’s a fight that could go either way with a KO/TKO priced at 21/10 for both fighters. Both fighters last two fights have been won by decision however, although 76% of Adesanya’s victories have come through knockout.

Both are serious punchers and submission seems completely off the cards in this one. It’s going to end in a bitter blow and it could come from either one of them.

If we had to, we’d just about side with Adesanya. A year is a long time to be out of the ring, and that little bit of rust could make all the difference.
