Having overcome the massive challenge that comes with fighting Yoel Romero not once, but twice, Robert Whittaker turns his attention to defending the middleweight belt against Kelvin Gastelum. A powerful striker with a granite chin, Gastelum poses a serious threat while on his feet, however Whittaker holds a statistical advantage in every in-game category. It will be interesting to see if Gastelum can rise to the occasion and take down a champion with few to no holes in his game.
