As he prepares for his UFC return, Robert Whittaker faces an uncertain future

What is Robert Whittaker supposed to do?

He’s the second best middleweight in the world by a fair distance. Problem is, he’s lost to middleweight champion Israel Adesanya twice and it’s a rare thing for a fighter to get a third bite at the apple after missing out two times before.

So what else can Whittaker, who returns to the cage this weekend in Paris to take on former title challenge Marvin Vettori, expect to do?

Whittaker himself isn’t sure, but according to him he doesn’t need to be right now — so long as he keeps fighting and winning, everything else will fall into place.

He still feels he did enough to earn the win over Adesanya in their second fight back in February, which was the culmination of a long journey of reconstruction after he lost the title to the New Zealander in October 2019.

“I’m only 31, I’m just coming into my prime. The best is yet to come. I still want to fight everybody and beat everybody, that’ll keep things simple,” Whittaker said.
