Robert Whittaker was thrown off guard by UFC president Dana White’s statement that he didn’t want a rematch with Israel Adesanya . Just one week after White said Whittaker (22-5 MMA, 13-3 UFC) vs. Adesanya (20-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) was a “very appealing” fight , he changed course and announced the reigning middleweight champ would instead be moving up to light heavyweight for a superfight against titleholder Jan Blachowicz. According to White, he looked into the champion-vs.-champion fight because of Whittaker’s lack of interest in a rematch with Adesanya
