Whittaker was born in New Zealand but moved with his family to Australia shortly afterward, and refers to himself as “Australian raised.” His father was a believer in the value of martial arts, and enrolled him in Karate at an early age. Whittaker spent several years studying this discipline before moving to Hapkido under Henrry Perez. A lifelong student of martial arts himself, Perez recognized the potential of MMA and incorporated MMA training into his academy in 2003, and Whittaker took to the sport immediately. He has quickly made his mark on the Australian MMA scene with an aggressive fighting style that sees him always looking for – and usually getting – a quick finish. He views MMA competition as the path for him to perfect himself as a martial artist, and he considers it an honor to represent the team and the country he has grown to love. And when people watch him in the Legend Ring, he wants them to understand that his performances are a product of his work ethic: “I’ve never been given anything easily in this life. I work hard for everything. Watch the results.”
