UFC 234: Whittaker vs. Gastelumadmin
UFC 234 Occurs on Saturday, February 9, 2019 in the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia.
The card broadcasts live on 10pm ET that is starting.
Robert Whittaker may be a mainstream celebrity, but the middleweight winner is a big frickin’ deal in his home country of Australia. The respectful Aussie should 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 respectful as could be. Neither guy is much of a trash talker, also Whittaker has emerged as an anti-McGregor in the GSP mould: equal portions considerate and respectful towards his enemies. It is honestly refreshing to see, with all these men puking garbage into microphones nowadays.
Also on the card is Israel Adesanya, whose swag and skills could catapult him into a title shot sooner than after. Drawing comparisons to some youthful Anderson Silva, The Last Stylebender will satisfy the now-old Anderson Silva in a fascinating middleweight bout. Silva came out and stated that he was assured a title shot with the triumph, which is surprising since the Brazilian hasn’t had a relevant victory in years.
