    SIR

    The UFC will return to Sydney, Australia on October 6, 2019 (October 5 in North America). The UFC 243 PPV event is being organized at Bankwest Stadium (capacity 30,000). The desired Main Event is being worked on and will probably be a title-unification fight between UFC Middleweight Champion Robert Whittaker and Interim Champion Israel Adesanya.

    It will be the sixth time for the UFC to organize an event in Sydney, Australia. The first time was on February 21, 2010. The last time on November 19, 2017.

    Would have preferred it to be sooner but I understand Israel wanting time off. Potential FOTY right here, WAR Whittaker!!

    Robert just had his insides rearranged. Izzy just went through war.

    The time line makes sense imo

    I really don’t have a pick here yet. This is close in my mind. And there are questions about Whittaker after that last war. And then he’s had abdominal surgery, too. This will take thought, breh...Deep thought.

    Can’t wait, though.

    Looking at Romero's leg with Israel
    This should give Robert enough time to recover.

    So he would have been champ since December 7th 2017 and not defended once in 22 months. Pathetic.
