UFC 271-Adesanya vs Whittaker also happened just over two years ago on February 12 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.When they met, Robert Whittaker was the champ and Israel Adesanya, was the challenger. Adesanya came away with a second round win via knockout in that one and now the roles are reversed.
At UFC 271, Israel is listed at +260 odds as the favorite and Whittaker is the +210 underdogs. Those around the first fight caledl it a butt whoopin’. This is the first time Robert Whittaker has been an underdog in a fight and this may have some motivation for him. In the previous fight, Adesanya had a counter for everything Whittaker sent to him. Now, they have analyzed this fight and counter moves are being planned. Israel did a magnificent job with his footwork and stiff jabs.
For Whittaker to win, he must be patient and control his anger. In the last fight, he let Adesanya play in his head and that caused issues. He must wait for the right time for some well planned kicks and counter punches when needed.

UFC 271 Prediction
If Adesanya plays the patience game, he will lose. If Whittaker allows his opponent to get to him mentally, he will lose. So, here is my take, I will bet Whittaker as the underdog with the hope of winning more money. That is the idea to betting. I believe Adesanya will win again so he also gets my bet.
Good luck and bet frugally.
