Robert Whittaker Fighter Statistics

Pro MMA Record: 23-6-0

Whittaker was born at Middlemore Hospital in Otahuhu, Auckland, New Zealand. His father is an Australian of European descent and his mother is of Māori and Samoan descent. Whittaker's father enrolled Robert, aged seven, and his brother in a Goju-ryu Karate school, to encourage them in self-discipline and self-defence. After training in the discipline for a little over eight years, and earning his black belt, his father offered him the chance to change to another sport or drop Karate entirely. While his brother decided to drop out, Robert chose to switch to Hapkido gym run by Henry Perez, following his move to Menai. Not long afterwards, Perez transformed his gym into an MMA gym. Having no other choice, Whittaker began training in MMA and was immediately hooked, choosing MMA as his preferred sport over Rugby League.
