UFC 243: Not Pumped For Robert Whittaker vs. Israel Adesanya? Watch The New Promo

UFC 243 is right around the corner, and the promotion's shared out a very solid, 'check this out' commercial for the card's headliner.

The UFC’s next pay-per-view card will go down on October 5th, and if you’re not yet pumped up to see the headliner between Robert Whittaker and Israel Adesanya, you should give the vid below a look.

Whittaker vs. Adesanya

Adesanya (17-0) locked up a bout with the middleweight champ Whittaker this past April, by defeating Kelvin Gastelum for the interim belt. The victory was “The Last Stylebender’s” sixth straight with the UFC, and followed his decision win over the legendary Anderson Silva in February.

Whittaker (20-4), on the other hand, hasn’t competed since last June, when he battled his way to a split decision win over Yoel Romero. It marked the second time the champion had defeated the powerful wrestler.

Recently the UFC posted the trailer below and it’s definitely worth a watch.
