Australian middleweight star ROBERT WHITTAKER to headline UFC Fight Night this weekend on ESPN

The biggest UFC Fight Night card in history, headlined by Australian middleweight star Robert Whittaker, is live and exclusive on ESPN this Sunday.

UFC Fight Night: Whittaker vs Till comes to Fight Island (Yas Island, Abu Dhabi) as #1 ranked middleweight contender and former UFC champion Robert Whittaker headlines against British challenger Darren Till.

Whittaker lost his UFC Middleweight title to Israel Adesanya on home soil back in October 2019, and the 29-year-old begins his quest for redemption on Yas Island, against the #5 ranked middleweight Till.

The Australian headlines a blockbuster card, which also hosts a number of former UFC champions.

Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira collide in a light-heavyweight showdown.

Rua is a former UFC light-heavyweight champion and Nogueria is a former interim-UFC heavyweight champion, with the pair two of the most experienced fighters in the organization.

In addition, former UFC Heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum faces off against Alexander Gustafsson, who recently made the move up from the light-heavyweight division.

Carla Esparza and Marina Rodriguez will also meet in a women’s strawweight bout.

ESPN’s coverage will include 15 fights inside the Octagon, across both the UFC Fight Night: Prelims and UFC Fight Night: Whittaker vs Till main card.

ESPN’s live coverage from Fight Island begins at 6am AEST, with the UFC Fight Night: Pre Show.
