UFC 234 Occurs on Saturday, February 9, 2019 in the Rod Laver Arena at Melbourne, Australia.
The principal 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 state 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 around The Ultimate Fighter 28 and were as respectful as could be. Neither guy is much of a trash talker, and Whittaker has emerged as a anti-McGregor in the GSP mold: equal parts respectful and humble towards his enemies. It is frankly refreshing to see, with all these guys puking crap into microphones these days.
Also on the card is Israel Adesanya, whose swag and abilities can catapult him into a title shot sooner than after. Drawing comparisons to some young Anderson Silva, The previous Stylebender will meet the now-old Anderson Silva in a fascinating middleweight bout. Silva came out and stated that he was promised a title shot with the win, which is surprising since the Brazilian has not had a relevant victory in years.
