Adesanya and Whittaker fought a handful of common opponents at MW, all legit and not far removed from their prime: Romero Gastelum Brunson Tavares > Whittaker shows to be the slighly superior fighter based on those fights, imo. Besides, Adesnaya - Costa (KO), Vettori (SD) Whittaker - Jacare (KO), Till, Canonier, Hall, Natal (UD) I guess if Israel defends his tittle vs Whittaker and makes it look easy again I'll be hard to deny Adesanya's superior greatness. If Bobby gets his revenge, there will be no discussion leff about who is the best behind Silva. Whittaker MW record is not far from Anderson Silva at this point. Their top10 wins list in terms of caliber of competition is pretty even imo, Silva a better finisher.
