UFC Star Robert Whittaker Becomes Voiced Skyrim Companion
UFC middleweight star and former champion, Robert Whittaker, has stepped into the video-game industry in some style.
The Sydney-based martial artist will feature in Skyrim as a semi-official, fully voiced companion mod.
All users will need to do is get their hands on the free Bethesda.net mod, which will be released in a few days. Once the mod is installed, users can see the UFC star roam “Whiterun.” The character will be seen teaching local kids how to fight.
Whittaker will also participate in a Game On Cancer fundraising campaign. It will be streamed live on Thursday at 10 am AEDT.
On the work front, Whittaker is preparing to avenge his loss to Israel Adesanya in early 2022.
The 30-year-old is on a three-fight win streak, beating Daren Till in July 2020, Jared Cannonier in October 2020 and Kelvin Gastelum this April.
With three decision wins in a row, Whittaker has earned another title shot against the same man who took away his middleweight title in October 2019.
Adesanya had knocked him out at UFC 243. The referee stopped the fight at 3:33 of the second round. It took place before Whittaker’s home crowd in Melbourne, Victoria. The Last Stylebender has since held the belt.
