Gastelum, a former victor of The Ultimate Fighter, conducted interviews after the news with a title belt. All three judges awarded the three-round fight to Adesanya: 30-27, 30-27 and 29-28.

Robert Whittaker has not fought since June of 2018, when he engaged in his second five-round war with the behemoth Yoel Romero.

It was widely expected to be a one-sided bout in favor of the younger fighter, the heaviest opposing favorite in Silva's illustrious career. Silva, 43, dropped a unanimous decision to Israel Adesanya in the main event from Melbourne in which he hypothetically passed the torch to the next generation of UFC. The topics of Conor McGregor and Anderson Silva's next fights seem to be looming for the company's public face.

"He had abdominal pain and was finally taken to the hospital by the UFC at 1am and was trying everything to remain in the fight, refusing any treatment that would force him out of the fight", Prates said. I was saying yesterday any odds makers that makes Anderson Silva 7-to-1 is out of their mind. "Crazy week. I showed up to work, a lot of people didn't even though it's out of their hands". Sometimes it's not in your control.

Silva gave as good as he got in a 15-minute battle with unbeaten wunderkind Israel Adesanya that unexpectedly became the main event of UFC 234 Saturday at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, when middleweight champion Rob Whittaker was forced to undergo emergency surgery in the middle of the night.

UFC boss Dana White, who was sitting front-row next to Damon and Hemsworth, later revealed how the Hollywood stars reacted during the brilliant fight.

"Rob heal up quick, Kelvin put that belt down, seriously", Adesanya said with a laugh from the crowd.

White would not speculate about whether an interim championship would be created and said that he projects Whittaker will be able to resume training in four weeks. And although the Brazilian fought back with a couple of punches to Adesanya's chin, the Kiwi won the first round.

"I love my job". This is my life. I continue to fight because this is my home.

"I try to fight in Curitiba, my city".

"F*ck, he didn't want the surgery, he wanted to fight", Prates said.
