As a result, for the interim title with Gastelum fought Adesanya, and he won the decision of judges, then got chance to fight with Whittaker for a full title.

The championship match turned out to be fleeting. In General controlling the battlefield, Adesanya sent Whittaker to the deck, but the referee in the octagon did not allow Israel to throw on the finishing, but in the second meeting one of the shocks of the Nigerian so shocked Robert that he fell a second time and allowed the opponent to complete the match in their favor.
