We are all set for the first UFC pay-per-view event of 2019, though just hours prior to UFC 234 taking place in Melbourne, Australia, the card was dealt a crushing blow. Middleweight champion Robert Whittaker, who was set to defend his title against Kelvin Gastelum, was forced to pull out due to a hernia that required immediate surgery. Still, a huge middleweight showdown will headline the festivities. 

The new main event of UFC 234 will now see former middleweight champ Anderson Silva take on undefeated Israel Adesanya in a bout that will be an intriguing battle of dangerous strikers. Adesanya has been quickly making a name for himself as he’s torn through the competition, and now he’ll have the main event spotlight against one of the greatest to ever step into the Octagon.
