Robert Whittaker has tasted defeat.

Israel Adesanya.

Adesanya, the interim champ, unified the middleweight title in the second round of the UFC 243

The punch that put Whittaker down came in the middle of a flurry, one of several that Whittaker initiated. He acknowledged that it was difficult to close the gap against Adesanya, but felt he was doing better than the end result might suggest.

For now, his immediate plans are to return home to take care of other matters, and then he can be back to fight preparation in two months. He emphasized that he feels healthy and is not injured.

Asked what he could have done differently in the fight, Whittaker stated the obvious before putting an optimistic foot forward.
