UFC 271 PPV price: How much does it cost to watch Israel Adesanya vs. Robert Whittaker 2 fight on ESPN?

By | February 8, 2022

In a rematch three years in the making, Robert Whittaker will look to regain the UFC middleweight title against Israel Adesanya. Taking place in the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on February 12, only one man will come out of the octagon as champion. 

A successful kickboxer, Adesanya made his MMA debut in 2012. He is 10-1 in the UFC since joining the promotion in 2018. After beating Whittaker for the UFC middleweight title at UFC 243, he has successfully defended it against Yoel Romero, Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori.

Whittaker made his MMA debut in 2009. After winning “The Ultimate Fighter” in 2012, he moved from welterweight to middleweight. He was to fight for the interim title at first, but plans changed and Whittaker eventually beat Yoel Romero to become undisputed champion. Since losing to Adesanya, he has beaten Darren Till, Jared Cannonier and Kelvin Gastelum.
