Whittaker enters the fight a very slight underdog (-105) to Adesanya (-115). “The Reaper” last fought at in June of 2018 against Yoel Romero at UFC 225 in a back and forth affair that saw the champ win via split-decision.

Adesanya was last seen in action at UFC 236 in a Fight of the Night Performance for the Interim Middleweight belt against Kelvin Gastelum.

The winner of this fight will presumably fight Paulo Costa, the number 2 ranked contender.
