Adesanya to headline UFC 234

Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone Offers To Step In And Save The UFC 234 Main Headliner Bout

For all the good luck that the UFC had in keeping fights scheduled through January, February is not starting off the same way.

UFC's rising star Israel Adesanya (15-0) and Anderson Silva (34-8) will now headline UFC 234, with the victor promised a shot at the title later in the year although now with Whittaker off the card the potential date is uncertain. "His injury isn't believed to be related to his weight cut".

Kelvin Gastelum is trying to put a positive spin on losing his chance to fight for the middleweight title at UFC 234. Lando Vannata and Marcos Mariano's lightweight matchup will also be elevated to co-main status. He later informed Okamoto that Whittaker would be going into surgery Saturday (North American time) to take care of the hernia.

UFC 234 has been plunged into turmoil by Robert Whittaker's injury exit on Saturday night.

Harry Kane is recovering well, says Pochettino
And he clearly enjoyed his chance to get close to the prize itself (and by that we mean Tom Brady, not the Vince Lombardi trophy). My decision straight away was to invite him in and to open the door to the first team".

Shortly after acknowledging the news Donald Cerrone happens to be in Australia extended his offer to replace Whittaker to UFC president Dana White.

The highly anticipated No. 1 contender match between rising New Zealand star Israel Adesanya (15-0) and Brazilian veteran Anderson Silva (34-8) will now serve as the main event on the Rod Laver Arena card.

The 28-year-old was scheduled to defend his belt against Yoel Romero at UFC 225, but the fight was changed to a non-title bout after Romero missed weight.
