UFC 234 takes place on Saturday, February 9, 2019 in the Rod Laver Arena at Melbourne, Australia.
The principal card broadcasts live on pay-per-view 10pm ET that is starting.
Robert Whittaker might not be a mainstream celebrity, but the middleweight winner is a huge frickin’ deal in his home country of Australia. The respectful Aussie should find a hero’s welcome in Melbourne when he defends his title against American Kelvin Gastelum in early February.
Both served as opposing coaches around The Ultimate Fighter 28 and were respectful as may be. Neither guy is much trash talker, also Whittaker has emerged as an anti-McGregor from the GSP mold: equal parts respectful and humble towards his enemies. It’s honestly refreshing to see, with all these guys puking garbage into microphones these days.
Also on the card is Israel Adesanya, whose swag and skills could catapult him into a title shot sooner than after. Drawing comparisons to a youthful Anderson Silva, The previous Stylebender will satisfy the now-old Anderson Silva in an intriguing middleweight bout. Silva came out and said that he was promised a title shot with the win, which is surprising considering that the Brazilian hasn’t had a relevant victory in years.
