“I think I could just give him a run for his money. I surprise a lot of people and I’m full of tricks. I think the intensity I bring into a fight is something that a lot of people aren’t prepared for. But he’s a great fighter, he’s super, super dangerous. I’m under no illusion how hard it would be, and yeah, I think it would be fun.” – Robert Whittaker #UFC
The fight mixed martial arts fans happened although the finish left a lot to be desired. Khabib Nurmagomedov successfully retained his title, forcing Conor McGregor to submit with 3:03 left in the fourth round in the main event of UFC 229.
