                Hell no. He's the class of the division and is willing to fight it's not like he's ducking guys.

                  As frustrating as these things are I dont want to see Rob stripped he just fought in June, he defended twice against a monster, and hes just a genuine good dude. This seems clear cut to me book Israel and Gastelum for interim to give Rob sometime to heal then book the unification fight.

                    Lmao I love Ariel I know he pushes a lot of buttons and tries to instigate shit but the man is not scared to ask questions and challenges a lot of people all while coming across like hes a scared mouse (he isnt) fuck Jeff Jarrett.

                        You can't lay down rules on defending your belt in an allotted time unless it goes for every fighter,and it won't.

                          I would pay 100.00 to watch Ariel fight any UFC fighter for 1 round.

                              It seems my opinion is echoed throughout the UFC spectators,we the people who watch the sport. Perhaps you guys need to listen,and stop Trash talk,respect and honor is key in combat sport,so show RW some guys and shut it about this shit.

                                You need to shut the shit up! He didnt trip over a power cord dumb arse he had abdominal hernia. Thats way harsh. I wonder if you dicks would be sayin same shit if it was Jon Jones or someone like that,,i think not. Its not been anywhere near 12 months. What a load of bullshit.

                                  90% of the time I agree with you... But, Rob is the last one that should be stripped.

                                    I would think Kalvin G. may have a bit of a tough time getting his head together to defend a belt he did not actually fight for. You can tell yourself that "you are" all you want, but you really don't know if your credible to have the belt. Maybe put some doubt in his mind?

                                      "Stripped" of the belt? That word is out of context, (to raise your emotions, Ariel, the manipulator at espn), as it means Whittaker did something wrong and punished by "stripping" him of his belt. Yes, he should lose the belt, because both fighters prepared to fight. It was very unfortunate that Whittaker fell ill just before the fight, but he has to lose the belt, and get a direct shot at getting it back as soon as he can fight. After a guy loses a belt in a fight, that fighter should have to fight 1 or 2 fights to climb back up. I would make an exception for Whittaker considering this circumstance. He deserves that consideration for sure IMO, but for now, he is the #1 contender who will either win the belt back, or he would have lost it anyway. Give him the fight when he can and is ready, and it should work out the same as it would have the first time.

                                          I don't think Whittaker cares if you get stripped. He's publicly said if you can't fulfill your contract you lose. And his case it's not his fault it's a medical thing but we all know he'll be back he'll reclaim the belt

                                            Does Robert Whittaker's hernia injury reduce (or have any impact) his ability to absorb body shots in the future?

                                                    The standard procedure is to have an interim belt which they didn’t do, Kelvin was ready and should have had a shot at an interim belt...👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

                                                      Its black and white. Tony was stripped because he was the 'interim champ'. Interim champs are next in line for the real title shot, if you cant fight as 'interim' then you are stripped. Nunes wasn't stripped because she was the Undisputed Champion.

How the hell did espn hire such a pos like Ariel? This dick rider defended Conor when he held the belt for 2 years ,never had a issue. Conor was not injured and had zero reason why he could not defend ..

He only had an interim belt... that is basically just an insurance that the champ has to fight you when he returns or he will be stripped... and by that same logic you will loose your interim insurance if you are not ready when the champ returns. Same thing happened to Colby, he had the insurance to fight Woodley when he returned... didn't want to fight then, so he lost it and Till got the opportunity instead.

You want champs to defend less than once a year? You want fighters to be rewarded for finding opportune moments to announce they're injured? You want more cards like UFC 234?
