Whittaker vs Adesanya Odds
The oddsmakers at BetOnline expect the betting line for the UFC 243 headliner to move even closer as many will bet on Adesanya as an underdog. Bet $100 to profit $123 on Stylebender, while Whittaker as a favourite is always worth a gamble. Bet $143 to profit $100 on the champ.
The UFC certainly are looking for a new face, with Khabib beginning to overshadow Jon Jones as the current greatest active fighter. Whittaker is obviously a great champ and has put on exciting fights in recent years – thanks to his dancing partner Yoel Romero. However, Adesanya does have that international appeal and fan-friendly striking style, a win would certainly launch Stylebender into a next level of stardom.
Could Robert Whittaker be underestimating Israel Adesanya ahead of UFC 243? Adesanya’s head coach, Eugene Bareman, certainly seems to think so, and the New Zealander thinks Whittaker’s refusal to acknowledge ‘The Last Stylebender’s’ skills will inevitably lead to the champ’s downfall on October 6, as reported by Lewis McKeever of BloodyElbow.com.
The co-main for UFC 243 seems a little weak with two women’s flyweights throwing down Nadia Kassem and Ji Yeon Kim. Hopefully the UFC can secure more last minute big fights for the Australian fan base.
