Robert Whittaker smothers Gastelum in UFC

·1-min read

Australian star Robert Whittaker overwhelmed Kelvin Gastelum in every facet, cruising to a unanimous decision in their UFC middleweight main event in Las Vegas.

Whittaker stunned Gastelum in the first round en route to 50-45 wins across all cards.

Whittaker (23-5) more than doubled Gastelum (17-7) in total strikes, recorded four takedowns of the American and dominated control of the fight, over four minutes to just 26 seconds for Gastelum.

Whitaker has his sights set on a rematch with middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, who defeated Whittaker with a second-round TKO in October 2019 at UFC 243.

"I think we should talk, mate," Whittaker said afterward.

"I think it's about time we crossed paths once again. I think I have some tricks he hasn't seen yet."
