Whittaker shouldn't even be considered at this point. Maybe give him a title shot when he gets back to fitness, but he's held a belt that he didn't win since 2017 and hasn't defended it. Before that, we had GSP, who refused to defend (but at least had the decency to give it up) and Bisping, who refused to fight contenders. The division has been moving slower than a paraplegic wading through honey for years now. DC had to beat Rumble, to claim a vacant belt, why did Whittaker just get given the strap? Even Conor had the good grace to actually beat the reigning champs to get his belts. The amount of love Whittaker gets on here is beyond me. Gastelum - Adesanya needs to be made for the full belt as soon as possible, get the line moving again. EDIT: Look, if you think someone other than Adesanya or Kelvin has a case for it then I can't tell you you're wrong. My point is, someone needs to fight for the belt and sharpish imo.
