UFC 234 Occurs on Saturday, February 9, 2019 at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia.
The card airs live on starting 10pm ET.
Robert Whittaker may be a mainstream celebrity, but the middleweight winner is a big frickin’ deal in his home country of Australia. The respectful Aussie must get a hero’s welcome in Melbourne when he defends his title against American Kelvin Gastelum in early February.
The two served as opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 28 and were as respectful as may be. Neither guy is much of a trash talker, also Whittaker has emerged as an anti-McGregor from the GSP mold: equal parts respectful and humble towards his enemies. It is frankly refreshing to see, with all these guys puking garbage into microphones nowadays.
Also on the card is Israel Adesanya, whose swag and abilities can catapult him into a title shot sooner than later. Drawing comparisons to a young Anderson Silva, The previous Stylebender will meet the now-old Anderson Silva in an intriguing middleweight bout. Silva came out and stated that he was assured a title shot with the triumph, which is surprising considering that the Brazilian hasn’t had a relevant victory in years.
