See what he has to say…
- Robert Whittaker recently spoke about Wednesday's fight with fellow TUF winner Court McGee. Here are the highlights…
On Beating a Fellow TUF Champ: "Yeah, definitely – I felt like I had something to prove to the other series and to myself, as well. I just wanted to prove to myself that the grade was the same (between the two series)."
His Thoughts on Court McGee: "I've seen him on numerous accounts take hits, and he just shrugs it off," Whittaker said. "I was actually a fan of his during his own series (of 'TUF'), and you've just got to be able to give the man some credit for his ability to takes shots. But also, he's well-versed in all aspects of the game. He's pretty well-schooled, and he takes it to you. He's a really strong pressure fighter. You've got to respect his abilities."
On His Striking: "My striking is definitely my strong point," he said. "I keep refining that to different grades and different levels with each fight. You have to keep your strengths strong, and that's what I plan to do."
