Robert Whittaker Wants to Be on UFC's Australia Return
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.30.2014

Robert Whittaker spoke with MMAjunkie about his win at UFC Fight Night 43 and more. Check out the highlights:

On ending a two-fight skid: "I learned a lot of hard lessons in my previous fights. I had a lot of things I had to fix myself, fix mentally and physically. When doubting yourself, just get back to your roots and stay true. I went out there and I did exactly what I needed to do. I threw my weapons at him and let him try and adapt and fix himself to what I was going to do. I'm my biggest critic, and I look at my own performance, and the fact that I got hit, I'm not happy with. I see holes to fix, and I'm just going to keep patching the holes up and keep turning into the weapon I envision."

On wanting to be on the UFC's rumored Australia show later this year: "I'd like to fight at home. I don't think I could say no if there was a fight at home. You bring the fight to my doorstep, I'll be there. I think that's how it is."

On the hometown ovation at Fight Night 43: "It's definitely hard (to concentrate) when you can feel it in your skin vibrating. I just take a few deep breaths and try and wish it away, but it definitely adds an edge to everything I am. The fact that I had so many fans out here and the fact that I had my home country backing me is just part of the team and part of the strength. It was awesome."
