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