Saturday night, UFC will be making its return to Australia as the UFC 234 event is set to go down inside the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. There’s yet another solid card on deck as the year continues to get started, and the event Saturday night in Melbourne is highlighted by two massive middleweight bouts. 

The main event of UFC 234 sees middleweight champion Robert Whittaker put his title up for grabs when he takes on Kelvin Gastelum. This will mark the first defense for Whittaker of his undisputed 185-pound title, with his victory over Yoel Romero last year not being contested for the championship with Romero failing to make weight again. In the co-main event, former middleweight king and future hall of famer Anderson Silva returns to the Octagon to take on one of the deadliest strikers in the game right now: undefeated Israel Adesanya.
