Adesanya to headline UFC 234

Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone Offers To Step In And Save The UFC 234 Main Headliner Bout UFC 234: Robert Whittaker pulls out of middleweight title fight at last minute

Just hours ago we got the bad news that 185-pound reigning champion Robert Whittaker forced to withdraw from his title fight with Kelvin Gastelum due to hernia issue.

Ironically, injury also forced Whittaker out of his last scheduled title defence in Australia, a UFC 221 clash with Luke Rockhold in Perth.

Kelvin Gastelum is trying to put a positive spin on losing his chance to fight for the middleweight title at UFC 234.

Elevated to the co-main is the lightweight matchup between American Lando Vannata and Brazilian Marcos Mariano.

UFC president Dana White said Whittaker's injury was unexpected and occurred the previous night.

In gasoline, the authority reported a build of 500,000 barrels, with daily production at a little less than 9.9 million barrels. A stronger dollar makes greenback-denominated commodities more expensive for holders of other currencies.

Earlier this week, White had said the winners of the Whittaker-Gastelum and Adesanya-Silva fights would meet later this year. Adesanaya vs. Silva will remain a three-round contest.

The event is going down on February 10, 2019 at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia.

It is understood a devastated Whittaker will undergo surgery on Sunday.

Those plans will now be delayed, given Gastelum is next in line for a title shot before the victor of the Adesanya-Silva showdown.

Silva (34-8-0, 1 NC), one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters in UFC history who held the middleweight title for seven years between 2006 and 2013, has not stepped foot in the octagon since his win over Derek Brunson at UFC 208 in 2017.
