Israel Adesanya Commends Robert Whittaker For ‘Being Open’

Robert Whittaker shared his thoughts about the issues he suffered during the last years.

He said that he had been suffering from depression for several years, which affected his first fight against Israel Adesanya in October of 2019. Adesanya recently commented on what Whittaker said.

“I haven’t heard too much about it, but yeah, good on him for being open and vulnerable,” Adesanya told The Independent.

“So yeah, good on him for bringing that to the forefront. It’s the first step, I guess, in getting over it or learning how to deal with it and manage it.

“Accepting it and sharing it kind of gives other people permission to do the same.”

After Whittaker lost to Adesanya, he, however, earned three victories in a row. He defeated Darren Till, Jared Cannonier, and Kelvin Gastelum dominantly.

Adesanya, meanwhile, defeated Yoel Romero, Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori since dethroning Whittaker. However, he failed to become a double champion when facing Jan Blachowicz.

Whittaker is set to rematch Adesanya, the middleweight king, on February 12 at UFC 271 in Houston, Texas.
