GAF Athlete Series | Robert Whittaker UFC Fighter
HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE SPORT?
I first started in martial arts when my parents put me into Karate for self defence. I continued Karate until receiving my black belt then switched to Hapkido and Jiu Jitsu. Following this the school I was learning these arts switched to MMA and thus my MMA career began.
WHO/WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST INSPIRATION AND WHY?
Early days my biggest inspiration was probably all the games and anime I watched, wanting to be the main character and wanting to be strong. As I got older it changed to my dad and me just wanting to be a good man.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE DREAM FIGHT WITH ANYONE, WHO WOULD IT BE?
Probably (Connor) McGregor because it would be a decent payday haha!
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED FOR?
One of the best fighters ever and a good man to boot.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU TRAIN A WEEK?
Everyday, bar Sunday.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR BEST EXERCISE/WORKOUT TIPS?
Enjoy the majority of it and there are many ways to climb a mountain.
