Nigeria’s UFC World Middleweight title contender Israel Adesanya

Nigeria’s UFC World Middleweight title contender Israel Adesanya

Behind the first UFC paywall of the year is a middldweight title fight between champion, Robert Whittaker, and challenger, Kelvin Gastelum. The co-main event features the former middleweight champion, Anderson Silva taking on rising star, Israel Adesanya.

ESPN's Ariel Helwani does not paint a pretty picture of what occurred that night, with Whittaker now in surgery.

The news, in which Whittaker reportedly suffered a hernia, initially came via ESPN's Brett Okamoto. His injury isn't believed to be related to his weight cut.

There will be plenty of action going down in the octagon this Saturday night at UFC 234 from the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. Whittaker is now riding a nine-fight winning streak while being undefeated at middleweight.

HBO announced Friday that the seventh and final season of the hit political satire will premiere March 31. Added Mandel: "I was a crying wreck". "I was really pleased with the reaction".

It's the second Australian headliner that Whittaker has been forced to pull out of. His last two wins were against Romero and haven't fought since June of 2018.

Gastelum won a state wrestling championship in high school, although Whittaker's amateur achievements in freestyle wrestling, as well as his proven ability to stop any-and-every takedown, make it unlikely that this fight spends much time on the ground. The Brazilian will take on a fighter 14 years his junior in Adesanya, who is sixth in the UFC middleweight rankings and 15-0 in his MMA career.

Despite being elevated to the main event, Adesanya's bout will remain a three-round fight.
