    His dad is Australian and his Mum is Maori .

    He was born in New Zealand due to his mums wishes but then moved to Australia when he was one month old.

    He represents both nationalities.

    So both countries are lucky to have him :)

    Look out for Ben Sosoli, saw him win the HW Diamondback title earlier in the year in Adelaide. Hits hard, cardio may be a question though.

    Should get some good ratings.
    Channel 10 is one of the top 3 major free to air networks.

    If Whittaker does some local TV promotion that should help too.

    If not, you guys can go cross the border to Germany and watch it there.

    Free to air is fucking dumb but I'm glad he is getting the promotion.

    Never watched a TUF but might give this one a look, hopefully they give some non scripted air time to the coaches. I like both guys a lot.

    I see RW is doing a 'night with Robert Whittaker' event in Sydney and Perth. Pretty expensive tickets. Seems a bit lame on his part

    I also just read they are airing the Adelaide fight night for free the next day as well. Coincides neatly with the ending of the fox deal. I wonder if Channel 10 are using this to test the ratings waters for picking up more UFC events moving forward... especially given ESPN doesn't have much of a presence here so they are unlikely to want to get the Aussie TV rights as well.
    @FrankieNYC you heard anything about TV rights outside of the US (ESPN, ESPN+) and that weird new UK sports channel?
