Robert Whittaker to Battle Jared Cannonier Next
By FCF Staff
Whittaker and Cannonier are going to battle at the October 24th, UFC 254 card, according to a report from ESPN. The report cites UFC President Dana White as the source.
Whittaker (21-5) met Till in the headliner of the UFC’s July 26th card in Abu Dhabi and worked his way to a unanimous decision win. It marked the first time the fighter had competed since he lost the middleweight title to Israel Adesanya last October.
Cannonier (13-4) hasn’t fought since September when he stopped Jack Hermansson. The former light-heavyweight and heavyweight has won three straight bouts.
