UFC 234 has wrapped up. The action took place inside the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. Taking the headlining spot was a middleweight clash between Israel Adesanya and Anderson Silva. A middleweight title bout between champion Robert Whittaker and Kelvin Gastelum was canceled when “The Reaper” was pulled due to a hernia in his abdomen.
After three rounds of back-and-forth action, Adesanya was awarded the unanimous decision victory. “The Last Stylebender” has now put himself in a position for a middleweight title opportunity. Time will tell if the UFC decides to re-book Whittaker vs. Gastelum or if an interim title will be needed. We’ll keep you posted.
The fighters from both the main and co-main events are expected to attend the post-fight press conference barring any hospital visits. Of course anyone else on the card who had a breakout performance could also attend the presser.
