The experience of 31-year-old Robert Whittaker, with his 30 UFC fights, may be key. Whittaker was middleweight champion in 2018, when he defeated Yoel Romero and lost it the following year, in his second defense, to Nigeria’s Israel Adesanya.
This same opponent defeated him in his last fight, in February, in Houston, Texas, when Whittaker tried to recapture the title. Despite this loss, he is ranked No. 1 in the middleweight rankings and is considered 13th in the pound-for-pound rankings.
He has an average fight time of 14:23 minutes and a knock-out rate of over 0.5%. Of the nine wins before the limit, five were by submission. He joined UFC in 2012, after several years of fighting in Cage Fighting Championship, an Australian organization.

Born in Trento, Italy, Marvin Vettori has yet to fight so far this year. His last fight dates back to October 2021, and it was in the light heavyweight category: he won by decision over Brazilian Paulo Costa. He has something in common with Whittaker, his next opponent: he was defeated twice by Nigerian Israel Adensaya, the undisputed middleweight king.
He made his UFC debut in 2016 and is currently ranked #2 in his category. Of his 18 career victories, he won half of them by submission. He has never been defeated before the limit and has only one draw, against Russian Omari Akhmedov.
Both contenders are coming in on a similar footing, with a good winning streak and a setback against the same opponent, Nigerian champion Adensaya. At JefeBet we believe that Whittaker’s greater craft and experience will prevail in the fight and that is why we give him as the winner.
Prediction: Robert Whittaker wins.
