UFC 234: Whittaker vs. Gastelum
UFC 234 Occurs on Saturday, February 9, 2019 in the Rod Laver Arena at Melbourne, Australia.
The principal card broadcasts live on starting 10pm ET.
Robert Whittaker may not be a mainstream celebrity, but the middleweight champion is a big frickin’ deal in his home country of Australia. The respectful Aussie must find a hero’s welcome in Melbourne when he defends his title against American Kelvin Gastelum in early February.
The two served as opposing coaches around The Ultimate Fighter 28 and were respectful as may be. Neither man is much trash talker, and Whittaker has emerged as an anti-McGregor from the GSP mold: equal portions respectful and humble towards his enemies. It is honestly refreshing to see, with so many men puking garbage into microphones nowadays.
Also on the card is Israel Adesanya, whose swag and abilities can catapult him into a title shot sooner than later. Drawing comparisons to some young Anderson Silva, The previous Stylebender will satisfy the now-old Anderson Silva in an intriguing middleweight bout. Silva came out and said he was promised a title shot with the triumph, which is surprising considering that the Brazilian hasn’t had a relevant victory in years.
