Robert Whittaker believes he gets Marvin Vettori next

Former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker is fresh off a second loss to the reigning champ Israel Adesanya, which means he’ll have to wait for a third clash with “The Last Stylebender”. If there’s a such.

Whittaker isn’t disheartened by his near-miss and is ready to go in search of another UFC title shot. The Aussie fighter believes Marvin Vettori is the man he’ll most likely face next and he says he will be ready to fight ‘The Italian Dream’ in July or August.

“I think he (Israel Adesanya) fights Cannonier next, and then I think I fight someone in the division. I don’t know how many people are left. Probably Vettori? Yeah, he would have to be the highest ranked next up, I believe,” Whittaker told Submission Radio.

“I’m looking forward to [fighting again soon]. I’m going to enjoy my little break now and then get back in the gym, probably look for like a July, August sort of return. I think that will be good, because then I can get a third one in at the end of the year. So, I think that’s good timing for me. But, yeah, that’s very rough, very rough.”

Vettori, on the other hand, also a former challenger who got beat by Adesanya, defeated Paulo Costa in his last outing inside the Octagon.
