Robert Whittaker vs. Marvin Vettori rescheduled for UFC Paris

The highly anticipated middleweight super fight between former UFC champion Robert Whittaker and former title challenger Marvin Vettori has been rebooked for the upcoming UFC debut in France.

UFC Paris takes place on September 3. Initially, the pair was scheduled to fight at UFC 275 which takes place next week in Singapore.

Whittaker (23-6) is coming off a close decision defeat to Israel Adesanya at UFC 271 in February. He’d previously won three in a row against Darren Till, Kelvin Gastelum, and upcoming title challenger Jared Cannonier. Back in 2017, ‘The Reaper’ won the interim title in his thrilling first meeting with Yoel Romero, then was elevated to full champ after Georges St-Pierre retired. Whittaker would lose the belt to Adesanya in 2019.

Vettori (18-5-1) was unable to unseat Adesanya atop the middleweight throne in his title shot last year at UFC 263. ‘The Italian Dream’ did get back in the win column afterward with an entertaining five-round decision over Paulo Costa in what was a light heavyweight bout. He’s also notably beaten Kevin Holland and Jack Hermansson, both in five-round main events.
